Innovative compan, Creative Cow returns to the South West, with The Lover a play by Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter. Last year, audiences were enthusiastic, as were critics, about this young company producing quality work on a quality shoestring.

Harold Pinter's The Lover ingeniously toys with our senses in an understated masterpiece. A short play written early in his career (1962), it is typically off beat.

Married couple's Sarah and Richard, from Berkshire, are unusually tolerant of each other's lovers in a bizarre saga with a wonderfully warped conclusion.

As ever, Pinter uses words and pauses to astonishing effect in this unexpected tale of a marriage.

Performance of a brief and witty sketch, also by Harold Pinter, will close the evening.

The performance will be directed by Amanda Knott. The local actors are Katherine Senior, Jonathan Parish and Jack Hulland. This exciting young ensemble will be at The Blackmore Theatre on March 28 and 29.
