Readings From Harold Pinter

Join us for a literary treat as British actor Julian Sands reads from Harold Pinter’s poetry, plays and prose in a benefit for Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics.

Many people are familiar with Pinter’s plays and screenplays, but few are aware of his poetry and essays. Sands became familiar with Pinter’s poetry several years ago when Pinter requested Julian read them on his behalf at a re- cital as his own voice was temporarily impaired. Personally tutored by Pinter, Julian describes the poems as “spare but complex works that explore atmospheres, landscapes and characters not unre- lated to his [Pinter’s] plays… they have an intimacy and a revelation of subjective feeling that he denied himself in his dramatic works.” Julian will read from Pinter’s work, adding insights, observations, and anecdotes at once frank, funny, poignant and personal. A brief audience discussion will follow.

Julian Sands, a British actor living in Los Angeles, has worked extensively in Europe and America. Films include Room with a View, The Killing Fields, Boxing Helena, Leaving Las Vegas, Timecode, Impromptu, Naked Lunch, Oceans 13 and David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of Girl With A Dragon Tattoo. Television credits include 24, Stephen King’s Rose Red, Castle, and Smallville. Sands was featured as the character “Mr. Sands” in Robert Altman’s production of Pinter’s The Room.
