THE LIFE and works of Nobel-Prize winning playwright Harold Pinter will be celebrated in a festival at Queen Mary, University of London this weekend.
The festival has been organised by the Queen Mary Theatre Company, and will celebrate the career highlights of one of Britain's most acclaimed modern dramatists who was born in Hackney.
The student-run company, which is supported by the Department of Drama, will perform a variety of Pinter's work ranging from 10-minute plays such as Night to better-known scripts like The Birthday Party.
There will also be talks from University of London lecturers about Pinter's work at the college in Mile End Road.
The festival will be a fitting tribute to the life of the playwright who died last year aged 78 and had longstanding ties with Queen Mary College.
He opened the very studio at the Mile End campus where many of the festival productions will be held, and which now bears his name.
