Harold Pinter (Writer) | Playbill

Harold Pinter

Writer, Director

The playwright seemed to understand that his career was drawing to a close. He had told the BBC that he had decided to cease playwriting. "I think I've stopped writing plays now, but I haven't stopped writing poems," he said. "I think I've written 29 plays. I think it's enough for me. I think I've found other forms now."
