WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Atlantic returns to the work of Tony Award® and Nobel Prize winning playwright Harold Pinter with The Collection & A Kind of Alaska: Two Plays By Harold Pinter. Although the plays are separated chronologically by many years, both are steeped in the author's signature humor, mystery and psychological tension. In The Collection (1961), a 4:00am phone call and a surprise visitor set off a series of conversations about potential infidelities among two couples. A middle-aged woman who has been asleep in a hospital room awakens after thirty years and must reorient herself to a greatly changed world in A Kind of Alaska (1982), which was inspired by the work of Oliver Sacks in his seminal book, Awakenings.
