Comedy Theatre renamed after Harold Pinter

8th September 2011

The Comedy Theatre in London is being renamed in honour of Harold Pinter, the playwright, actor and director who wrote and appeared in several productions at the venue prior to his death in 2008.

The announcement was made by Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), which has owned the venue since 2000, claiming it was a 'fitting tribute' to a person who had a major impact on British theatre.

Howard Panter, ATG's joint chief executive and creative director, said Pinter became an integral part of the theatre's history through directing plays including The Caretaker and No Man's Land and occasionally appearing on stage himself.

'The renaming of one of our most successful West End theatres is a fitting tribute to a man who made such a mark on British theatre and, over his 50-year career, became recognised as one of the most influential modern British dramatists,' he added.

Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden will be the first production staged at the newly named Harold Pinter Theatre next month.
