Pinter finds B’way home

Nobel laureate returns to Great White Way with revival

Everyone’s talking about Harold Pinter this week.

The British playwright and Nobel laureate will return to Broadway with a revival of his 1965 play “The Homecoming.” Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, the producers behind “Glengarry Glen Ross” and the upcoming “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial,” have secured the rights for a Broadway production aiming for the 2006-07 season.

Meanwhile, “Celebration” and “The Room,” the Pinter double bill now playing Off Broadway at the Atlantic, has extended through Jan. 21 in the wake of strong reviews.

The scribe has been battling cancer and was recently hospitalized. Awarded the Nobel for Literature in October, he blasted George W. Bush and Tony Blair for the invasion of Iraq in a videotaped lecture Dec. 7.
