A series of personal essays about the playwright Harold Pinter who died in December 2008. The first two are:
1. Michael Colgan, artistic director of the Gate Theatre in Dublin, looks at Harold Pinter's long association with Ireland, from the very early 1950s when he toured as a young actor with Anew McMaster's company to the Gate Theatre, where Colgan presented four major festivals of the late playwright's work.
2. Theatre critic and Pinter biographer Michael Billington explores the playwright's changing use of dramatic language.
