Julian Sands, best known for his performances in "Room With a View" and "The Killing Fields," and most recently seen on screen in the blockbuster film "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," is set to make his New York City stage debut in A CELEBRATION OF Harold Pinter, with performances beginning Wednesday, October 10 at Irish Repertory Theatre's W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre (132 West 22nd Street). With personal anecdotes and reflections drawn from their work together, Julian Sands combines Harold Pinter’s poems and political prose to create a very fresh and intimate insight into the Nobel laureate’s literary legacy.
A CELEBRATION OF Harold Pinter premiered at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival as an homage to Pinter, who died in 2008. The production toured through Britain, and was presented in San Francisco and Los Angeles earlier this year with Backstage calling it "mandatory viewing for devotees of the actor and certainly 'the defining dramatist of the 20th century.'"Directed by Oscar-winning actor and acclaimed director John Malkovich ("Places in the Heart, THE CARETAKER). A CELEBRATION OF Harold Pinter opens Off Broadway on Tuesday, October 16, with performances running through November 4.
