Michael Gambon joins the season of Harold Pinter's one-act plays.

London’s Harold Pinter Theatre will host a season of the legendary playwright’s one-act plays, performed by some of the world’s most celebrated actors and creatives, many of whom were Pinter’s friends and collaborators.

The seven shows will capture a total of 16 plays, and will showcase performances by the newly announced Michael Gambon, as well as the previously announced Ron Cook, Danny Dyer, Martin Freeman, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks, Celia Imrie, John Macmillan, Emma Naomi, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Abraham Popoola, David Suchet and Nicholas Woodeson.

Keith Allen, Phil Davis, Paapa Essiedu, Rupert Graves, Gary Kemp, John Simm and Maggie Steed were also recently announced as joining the celebratory season.

The current list is completed by Jessica Barden, Kate O’Flynn, Sir Anthony Sher, Hayley Squires, Luke Thallon, Russell Tovey and Penelope Wilton, who will all also take to the stage across the season.

Gambon will be joining the season as the voice of The Guard in Mountain Language.
