Michael Kitchen acted in two Harold Pinter plays directed by Peter Hall, No Man’s Land and Family Voices. Reading about Hall’s lifework today, I was intrigued by what he had to say about the pauses written into Pinter’s plays and the difficulty John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson had with them. I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael Kitchen was able to handle Pinter’s pauses with ease from the get-go.
