The Pinter Plays (The Collection & The Lover) by Harold Pinter

Nobel Prize-winning playwright, Harold Pinter, one of the seminal figures of 20th century drama, is a master of the minimal and the malevolent. The Collection and The Lover are two of his most unnerving and, yes, funny, one-acts.  In both plays couples deal with fidelity and infidelity that may (or may not) have happened; in both the undercurrents of violence—sexual and social—are exposed, toyed with, and ultimately left for the audience to wrestle with; and in both, Pinter leaves us keenly aware of something in the universe having shifted in an intangible and deeply unsettling way.
