London’s Comedy Theatre is to be renamed next month after Harold Pinter, the playwright, director and actor who died in 2008. Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) said it was “a fitting tribute to a man who made such a mark on British theatre”.
The theatre has hosted seven Pinter productions over the last 21 years, including The Homecoming, No Man’s Land, Moonlight, The Hothouse, The Caretaker with Michael Gambon.
The most recent was a production of Betrayal starring Kristin Scott Thomas, which ended its run last month.
