Date Published: 1970

Description: 2 pages (front and back), 9 x 7 inches, Hanover Terrace, London, March 4, no year but accompanied by the original envelope postmarked in 1970. Written to acclaimed Broadway actress Tresa Hughes regarding a project that had been sidelined, in part: "....I'm sorry about it. You're right - the whole thing took place - if not without me - without me in the centre of things. I simply can't be in the centre of everything. I'm not going to New York. I don't think there are any villains though. You are clearly held in the highest respect and I know there was a great deal of talk. I don't know Natwick...We'll do something else." Natural folds; one word smudged plus a small stain on the second page. Very good(-) condition.

Comments: Nobel Prize-winning English playwright and director whose works include "The Birthday Party", "The Homecoming," and "Betrayal." One year before this letter was written, Pinter had directed Donald Pleasance and Tresa Hughes in the Broadway play "The Man in the Glass Booth" and most likely wanted to follow the momentum of that success with a new project.

I have just returned from visiting NY and your store. I immediately came to the site to see what else you had ... am I in trouble! I could have spent hours (ok, more hours) there! The staff was wonderful! My husband and I are avid readers (of everything) and we will be contacting you again I am sure. Thank you so much! - Tammy Z.
