Theatre review: The Lover/The Collection by Harold Pinter
at The Comedy Theatre, Panton Street, London, W1
London type: West End
Rating: ***1/2 (out of 5)
Review by: Alexa Williamson
Harold Pinter is a living British theatre icon who is a member of the pantheon of great modern British playwrights (which also includes Noel Coward, Alan Ayckbourn, JB Priestley, Peter Shaffer and a few others.)
Alongside Noel Coward, he is currently London’s hottest playwright and anything by him will, rightly, sell well because of the strength of script alone.
Currently on stage at one of his favourite venues are two of his 29 plays, which have been keenly coupled together, and focus on the dynamics of, and problems that face, normal middle class couples.
