PINTER BACK ON? The playwright revises and extends some recent remarks, which seemed to suggest he was done with the theatrical form for good:
I’d like to correct that straightaway. I said something casually. It was not a declaration of policy or intent, it was just a very practical matter. I haven’t written a play for six years, and I think it’s unlikely that I’ll write another one. My writing, such as it is, is going into other things, mainly poetry. That’s all there is to it.So the door seems to be open after all.
