Harold Pinter

Further to the post about Samuel Beckett and upcoming theatre events. I had dinner at one of the restaurants on the waterfront of a little island in the South China Seas on Sunday evening with one half of Theatre du Pif -- Sean. The other half, Bonnie, is in Kuala Lumpur meeting with theatre people.
We'd forgotten it was Sunday and that, therefore, the restaurants would be busier than usual. So we didn't get to eat at the resto we had planned -- it was too busy, no free tables.
So. . . we went to one of the other ones. . . and it was good: chopped-up roast pigeon (including, of course, the poor pigeon's head) and other stuff.
Anyway, Theatre du Pif are at Hong Kong's Fringe Club in mid-April and are presenting/performing Harold Pinter's Ashes to Ashes.
Never heard of it? Neither had I. Apart from, that is, the track on David Bowie's superb Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps).
Digging around online unearths the following: Harold Pinter, Ashes to Ashes, 1996. More info at Royal Court Theatre,
Theatre du Pif
Hong Kong's Fringe Club.
Show dates and details to follow.
