Performance of excerpts from two very early works by Harold Pinter: The Room and A Slight Ache, filmed in 1965 when they played at the Writers Stage in New York City.  Performers: The Room - Frances Sternhagen, Margaret Linn, and Ian Jenkins. A Slight Ache - Frances Sternhagen and Henderson Forsythe. This program includes a brief interview with director Word Baker. 

Each of these plays is in one act, and each ilustrates one of Pinter's recurrent themes - the prison in which individuals live as the result of their inability truly to communicate with each other.

Harold Pinter (1930 -2009) is a world-renowned English playwright, honored with a Nobel Prize for Literature. He is also highly regarded as a screenwriter, actor, director, poet, and political activist.  His best known stage works include The Birthday Party (1957), The Caretaker (1959), The Homecoming (1964), and Betrayal (1978),

The Room,  written in 1957, was his first play.
