'A Celebration of Harold Pinter' w/Julian Sands

Mary B. Martin School of the Arts at East Tennessee State University will present A Celebration of Harold Pinter with Julian Sands on Friday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Martha Street Culp Auditorium. A Q&A with Sands will follow the show.

This one-man theatre with actor Julian Sands, was coached by Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter himself and directed by John Malkovich. Sands is known for his work in more than 100 films, television and the stage, in work including 'The Killing Fields,' 'Oceans 13,' 'Dexter,' 'Ghost Whisperer' and his role on '24.'

In 'A Celebration,' Sands intermingles Pinter’s short poems – romantic, personal and political – with commentary from Pinter’s colleagues and critics, observations by the playwright’s widow and anecdotes of Sands’ own. Since performing A Celebration at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival, Sands has been touring the show – celebrating Pinter’s poetry and passion in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, Paris, Budapest and other venues around the world.
