“A Celebration of Harold Pinter,” the Julian Sands solo show directed by John Malkovich, will land in Gotham this fall as part of the 25th anniversary season of Off Broadway’s Irish Rep.
“Celebration of Harold Pinter,” which bowed at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2011, appears on an Irish Rep slate that also includes Brian Friel’s 1973 play “The Freedom of the City” (Oct. 3-Nov. 25), directed by Irish Rep producing director Ciaran O’Reilly, and “The Songs I Love So Well” (Nov. 29-Dec. 30), a look back at the career of musician Phil Coulter.
Sands makes his Gotham stage debut in “Celebration of Harold Pinter” (Oct. 10-Nov. 4), while Malkovich, whose last Broadway credit was an acting gig in “Burn This,” previously helmed Rialto revivals of “Arms and the Man” and Pinter’s “The Caretaker.” Produced in association with Nick Brooke Ltd., show mixes segs of Pinter’s work with Sands’ personal anecdotes about the scribe.
A Christmas show remains to be announced for the 2012-13 season at Irish Rep.
