Faber Members is delighted to present Julian Sands in A Celebration of Harold Pinter.

In 2005 Julian Sands was asked by the Nobel Prize winning playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a selection of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. They worked closely together, this extraordinary collaboration evolving into a solo show directed by John Malkovich. A Celebration of Harold Pinter has since been performed all over Europe and America.

‘This modest, affecting show embodies the notion of the actor as a transparent vessel through which we see the thoughts and feelings of others.’ New York Times


Harold Pinter was born in London in 1930. He lived with Antonia Fraser from 1975 and they married in 1980. In 1995 he won the David Cohen British Literature Prize, awarded for a lifetime's achievement in literature. In 1996 he was given the Laurence Olivier Award for a lifetime's achievement in theatre. In 2002 he was made a Companion of Honour for services to literature. In 2005 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and, in the same year, the Wilfred Owen Award for Poetry and the Franz Kafka Award (Prague). In 2006 he was awarded the Europe Theatre Prize and, in 2007, the highest French honour, the Légion d'honneur. He died in December 2008.

British actor Julian Sands has worked extensively for stage and screen. His numerous film credits include The Killing Fields, A Room with a View, Impromptu, Boxing Helena, Leaving Las Vegas, Arachnophobia, Oceans 13 and The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. Theatre includes Tony Blair in David Hare’s Stuff Happens at the Mark Taper Forum, LA, and most recently Richard III, also in Los Angeles; and for television, Dexter, 24, Smallville and Gotham. He has just completed work on Walk Like a Panther, a wrestling film set in Yorkshire.
