UK actors to perform Harold Pinter’s works in the Havana Theatre Festival

Roger Lloyd Pack
The life and works of Harold Pinter, the Nobel prize winner, actor, writer and former patron of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign will be celebrated in Havana in November this year.

A group of UK actors led by Andy de la Tour and Roger Lloyd Pack will bring a selection of Pinter’s works to Cuba for the first time. As well as performance there will be rehearsed readings as well as film screenings and discussions exploring the life of Harold Pinter and recognising his internationalism and commitment to a better world.

The group will be a central element of the acclaimed Festival de Teatro de La Habana (Havana Theatre Festival) which runs across a host of venues and open air spaces between 28 October – 6 November, 2011. The festival showcases works by hundreds of Cuban and international companies through its broad and extensive 10 day programme.

Roger, who played Barty Crouch in the Harry Potter films and is well known for his TV roles such as Trigger in Only Fools and Horses said he was most looking forward to “meeting the Cuban people to share his appreciation of Pinter’s work while hopefully enjoying their famously ‘relaxed’ attitude to timekeeping”

CSC will be running a small study tour to enjoy the Festival. You can download further information and booking form here. Places are limited.
