Waterstones TCR is joining up with the BFI’s July/August season: Pinter On Screen: Power, Sex and Politics. Join us for this screening of The Lover (1968), chosen by The Guardian’s theatre critic and Harold Pinter’s biographer Michael Billington who’ll be hosting a post-screening discussion and Q&A.

To mark the 10th anniversary of Harold Pinter’s death, the BFI celebrates this influential writer. We’re screening The Lover in an area of London in which so many of this influential writer’s plays have been staged.

In the play, a suburban middle-class couple – played by Alan Badel and Pinter's then-wife Vivien Merchant – become trapped in the sexual role-playing games they use to spice up their otherwise conventional marriage. From its striking opening, in which two sets of silhouetted fingers tap upon a drum and entwine themselves like a pair of mating tarantulas, the play creates an atmosphere of eroticism unusual for television in 1963.

Join us for an evening of seminal cinema and insightful conversation

Tickets £6.
