The Irish Repertory Theatre has announced that Julian Sands (A Room With a View) will return to present A Celebration of Harold Pinter, directed by acclaimed actor and director John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich). The solo show will play for a strictly limited engagement from March 15-April 3.

In A Celebration of Harold Pinter, originally presented during Irish Rep’s 2012-13 theater season, Julian Sands combines Pinter’s poems and political prose with personal anecdotes and reflections drawn from their work together to create a fresh and intimate insight into the Nobel laureate’s literary legacy.

The event will also mark the Irish Repertory Theatre’s final performance at the DR2 Theatre, where the theater has been in residence since fall 2014. During that time, a major renovation took place at its home base on West 22nd Street in Chelsea.

A Celebration of Harold Pinter has lighting design by Michael O’Connor and wardrobe by Nicole Farhi.
