A Celebration of Harold Pinter

Julian Sands

As the Nobel-winning playwright, Harold Pinter was known for his intense, uncomfortable, and dark works. But he was also a poet, and in 2005, he asked the actor Julian Sands to step-in for a reading Pinter was too sick to perform. Sands says what he found was the work of a sensitive man of immense love. After Pinter’s death, Sands created a one-man show from his prose and poetry. He’s bringing it to Utah, and Tuesday, he joins Doug to talk about his “Celebration of Harold Pinter.”

On Friday, September 5 at 7:30, Julian Sands will perform "A Celebration of Harold Pinter" at Weber State University's Allred Theater. For tickets and information, call 801-626-8500 or click here.
