ACT does Pinter!

ACT’s Central Heating Lab Extends Its Free

Play Examination Series: Pinter Fortnightly 


Seattle, WA – May 13, 2009 – Due to the enthusiastic response from both the actors and audiences, The Central Heating Lab at ACT is extending its free play examination series Pinter Fortnightly through June 15, 2009. The updated schedule is for the following Mondays at 7:00 p.m.:

May 18:     The Caretaker, with David Drummond, Allen Galli, Peter Lohnes, and host, Ted D’Arms


June 1:       Landscape and The Lover, with Richard Ziman, Leslie Law, Deb Fialkow, and Jean Sherrard


June 15:     Moonlight, with Frank Corrado, Suzanne Bouchard, Elise Hunt, Tim Gouran, and others.


This series began the end of March with three planned readings. It was originally slated to end April 20, 2009 but an additional reading of two of Pinter’s “political” one acts: One for the Road and Ashes to Ashes was added on May 4, 2009. True to the Central Heating Lab’s philosophy, and ACT’s mission, these readings invite, if not demand comment and discussion, not to mention argument. Audience participation is robustly encouraged. All readings are open to the public and free of charge. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Presented in an informal setting, without any “bells and whistles,” Pinter fans can sit back and enjoy the brilliant writings of Harold Pinter, read aloud by many of this city’s most prolific and respected working actors and directors. Now the Pinter-esque pleasure will continue every other Monday night (fortnightly) at 7:00 p.m. inside ACT’s special events room, Buster’s. The bar will be open, no advance tickets are required and seating is on a first come basis. ACT is located at 700 Union Street, Downtown Seattle. Information available by phone only at (206) 292-7676.
