Ashes to Ashes - Harold Pinter

Presented By 30 Minute Theatre

About this event

Ashes to Ashes was written by Harold Pinter in 1996 and received its English première in the September of that year by the Royal Court at the Ambassadors Theatre, London, in a production directed by Pinter itself and with Stephen Rea and Lindsay Duncan in roles of Devlin and Rebecca.

The play centres around the ambiguous relationship between Devlin and Rebecca. Are they husband and wife? Therapist and patient? Abuser and victim? Pinter leaves us guessing and it is this very ambiguity that has been the focus of our own investigations in this production.

30 Minute Theatre is a new series of short workshop-style productions where staff and students work together to explore, interrogate and play with intriguing dramatic texts.
