    This book published in 2001 around the time of the playwright's 70th birthday and a bit of a retrospective contains two plays by Harold Pinter Celebration first presented in 2000 was actually the last full length play that Pinter wrote as he wrote only poetry for the remainder of his life The Room was Pinter’s first play dating from 1957As a comedy about marriage and adultery Celebration comes as a bit of a change of pace after the very intense “political” plays Pinter had focused on in the years immediately prior to it Riotously funny it is set in the best restaurant in Europe with the stage divided into two tables At one Lambert and his brother Matt dined with their wives Julie and her sister Prue celebrating the anniversary of Julie and Lambert At the second table Suki chats with his wife Russell As the play progresses the characters get progressively drunk make appalling revelations without realizing it divulge their infidelities and yet stay oddly content and glad hearted Among the tables roam Richard and Sonia the owners and a hilarious intrusive waiter It has been a long time since I read a Pinter play that made me laugh out loud unless it was the laugh of shock and outrage at revelations in his political works and enjoyed Celebration immensely The Room was written when Pinter was still suarely in the genre of theatre of the absurd Rose a sixty something housewife muses about who's living in the basement flat of her building talks incessantly to her taciturn husband and encounters a young couple interested in the room to let At the end of the play Riley a blind negro enters and brings a surprising message to Rose resulting in the play's shocking ending While I found the ending compelling most of the play is fairly tedious; the very length of the play is a mark of the young writer's immaturity since mature Pinter is uite compressed Still worth checking out as the beginning of a very entertaining career

    Celebration is faced paced and easy to read a microcosm of life's many meaningless moments that I took to represent our desire for materiality over meaning and the elusiveness of time The Room is a haunting tale that I took to be a reflection of our desire to disassociate from the past and our constant challenge to find permanence and meaning Both tales leave you a little dissatisfied at the end but provide plenty of material and uestions to mull over afterwards
