Considered one of the most influential British playwrights in modern times, Harold Pinter was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. In awarding the prize, the Academy referred to the playwright, screenwriter, actor and director as "a modern classic." He is the author of 29 stage plays and more than two dozen screenplays. Some of his best known plays include The Caretaker, The Homecoming, and Betrayal. His screenplay adaptations include The French Lieutenant's Woman, Sleuth and many of his plays.
This disturbing and controversial piece offers up Pinter's biting wit and brilliant use of language. Upon its opening in 1975, the Arts Guardian of London called No Man's Land "a masterly summation of all the themes that have long obsessed Pinter...a living theatrical experience full of rich comedy in which one speech constantly undercuts another."
