About The Book

Named as 1984’s Play of the Year by Drama magazine, Harold Pinter’s One for the Road is a chilling study of power and powerlessness. Set in an unnamed totalitarian, the play presents a violent, disturbing portrait of political horror in which an interrogator torments a tortured prisoner and his imprisoned wife and child. The book includes an extended interview with Pinter, specially commissioned to introduce this definitive edition of the text, in which he traces his own political development and illuminates his motives for writing the play.
