Pinter Takes a Break

Harold Pinter tells the BBC he’s stopped writing plays for now.

Pinter told Front Row presenter Mark Lawson that his energies were “going in different directions, certainly into poetry”.

“But also, as I think you know, over the last few years I’ve made a number of political speeches at various locations and ceremonies,” he said.

“I’m using a lot of energy more specifically about political states of affairs, which I think are very worrying as things stand.”
