News   Harold Pinter Appears in Sketches at National

Harold Pinter, despite recent press reports of his having cancer, will be appearing on stage at the National Theatre, where he is in a cast of major stars, acting in a series of rarely-seen Pinter sketches, some of them written several decades ago.

Sketches will be performed in two sections, on Feb. 8 and Feb. 11, directed by Gari Jones, who also directed Pinter's Monologue, which was performed by Henry Woolf on the stage of the Cottesloe at the National last month.

One of the rising stars of his generation, Jones has worked on several Pinter shows and directed a tour of The Caretaker recently. He also directed Monologue at the Almeida and at the Lincoln Center in New York as part of the Pinter season there.
