sat in on his rehearsals which were conducted with clarity, precision
and ease. I think what I learned from him is that directing is
simply a matter of the application of common sense. Anybody should
be able to do it who is capable of thinking practically and specifically
about the meaning of this or that line."
Simon Gray in Michael Billington, The Life
and Work of Harold Pinter, London: Faber
and Faber, 1996, p.222.
"Harold Pinter's direction has just the right
touch of ironic fooling and self-deprecation to make this clever
play one of the delights of the year."
Milton Shulman, The Evening Standard,
15 July 1971.
"There are none of the expected characteristics
in Harold Pinter's direction, no pauses gravid with hidden meaning;
it is simply right at every moment."
B. A. Young, The Financial Times, 15 July
