Julian Sands in
A Celebration of Harold Pinter
Directed by John Malkovich
Presented in partnership with Texas Theatre and Dance and KLRU
Actor Julian Sands is frequently seen worldwide in films, on stage, and on television. He trained in London at The Central School of Speech and Drama and has appeared in over 100 films including; The Killing Fields, A Room with a View, Ocean’s 13, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. On television, he is best known for his recent role on 24 but has also been seen on Smallville, Ghost Whisperer, and Dexter.
In 2005, Mr. Sands was approached by Nobel Prize-winning playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a set of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. Working closely with Pinter, he was granted a rare insight into his personality, life, and work. This extraordinary collaboration evolved into a wonderfully humorous and fascinating solo show directed by John Malkovich, titled A Celebration of Harold Pinter.
This is an evening of outstanding theater with an extraordinary actor, great words, and an audience. Devoid of pretense or glittery trappings, A Celebration of Harold Pinter gets to the soul of the man—poet, playwright, husband, political activist, Nobel winner, mortal. A Celebration of Harold Pinter was nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.
“… a performance that captures the pugnacity, precision and a little of the dry humor of an exacting writer.” — Variety
