Belarus Free Theatre's production of Vladimir Shcherban's Being Harold Pinter, will receive an encore benefit performance Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare on February 21, at 7:30pm.

The play, directed by Shcherban, juxtaposes transcripts from Belarusian political prisoners with excerpts from Harold Pinter's plays, including The Homecoming, Ashes to Ashes, and Old Times, as well as his other writing, such as his Nobel Prize speech. The work is presented in Belarusian and Russian with English supertitles.

As previously reported, the Chicago engagement was co-presented by Goodman Theatre, the League of Chicago Theatres and Chicago Shakespeare Theater. The Chicago performances follow the company's run at the Under the Radar Festival and a period of hiding for the group in their homeland.

Benefit tickets are $50 for the performance and $100 for the performance and post-show reception. To purchase, call 312-595-5600.
