A Kind of Alaska
    By Harold Pinter

    'The past is what you remember, imagine you remember, convince yourself you remember, or pretend you remember.'

    But then what is the present when all you have is a distant past?

    Based on Oliver Sack's Awakenings, Pinter brings to life the tale of a woman awakening from a catatonic state, known as sleeping sickness, after 30 years. Sleeping as a child she awakes as an adult, terrified, confused and alone. This beautiful play offers a glimpse into a mind that has been suspended in time and space, examining a woman who has been dreaming a 16 year olds' dream for three decades.

    For one night only, come explore memory and the human experience, and witness one of the most delightful and simply beautiful of Pinter's plays.
