Dinner with Pinter–A delicious success!

Early this month there was a two night benefit dinner to launch the Mpls Pinter Studies.  

The evening included a multi-course British meal and various Pinter Tapas (selections of short works, including an outdoor rendering of Victoria Station and selections from Blake Bolan’s original Pinter inspired piece “There Are The Men”).  The Pimm’s #1 Cup was also a hit!


We send Many thanks and praise to the chefs and performers whose skill and passion made the evening a success.  We were able to raise a very pleasing amount of money.  We will can now proceed comfortably into our full production in February 2009. 

We will feature the following pieces:

Harold Pinters’ Family Voices directed by Jeffry Lusiak

The failures of memory and communication collide as a young man moves to the big city and lives among unsavory and decadent characters in this 1980 radio play.

Harold Pinter’s One for the Road directed by Maggie Scanlan

A young family is brought in for questioning and torture in one of Pinter’s most politically satiated works.

The Black and White directed by Terry Hempleman

Inspired by one of Pinter’s earliest short sketches, a female vagrant at a milk bar fends off loneliness through seemingly trite observations of bus routes.

These Are the Men written and directed by Blake Bolan

Using Pinter’s classic style of ambiguity and absurdity, this original piece transplants Pinter’s vernacular to the Oedipus cycle.

Please join us for these pieces as they parade throughout the Colonial Warehouse Building in Minneapolis North Loop (212 3rd Avenue North) for six nights in February 2009.  We’re still looking for the perfect menu pairing for each performance.
