The Lover and The Collection

BUY TICKETS

Following the success of his 2011 production of Old Times, STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn (The Critic) returns to Harold Pinter’s gripping realm of doubt and disquiet to direct a double bill of short plays, considering how we construct our own realities, which truths we tell and which lies we choose to believe.

In The Collection, a jealous husband confronts a rival, whom his wife may or may not have met. In The Lover, a couple calmly plans for their scheduled infidelity. In Pinter’s darkly comic world of revealing silences and pregnant pauses, the characters—and the audience—never know quite where they stand, embracing reality and fantasy with equal conviction.
