Other Places: A Kind of Alaska, Victoria Station, Family Voicesby Harold Pinter
In A Kind of Alaska, a middle-aged woman wakes up after nearly thirty years passed in a coma/i>
When this trjptych of new plays by Harold Pinter opened in London in October 1982 it was celebrated by critics and audiences alike as an electrifying theatrical event that confirmed once again the author's undisputed place in the forefront of today's dramatists.
In A Kind of Alaska, a middle-aged woman wakes up after nearly thirty years passed in a coma induced by sleeping sickness. Victoria Station is a hilarious nocturnal dialogue on a car radio between a lost taxi driver and his controller. Family Voices, originally broadcast as a radio play and subsequently presented in a "platform performance," is a set of parallel monologues in the form of letters which a mother, son and father may have written to each but never exchanged.
