Classics, Footprints Festival
Mac and More
DIRECTED BY JAMES HAYES.
5 June 2021
“A cow looked in through the car window. No autographs today, I said.”
Harold Pinter began life as an actor touring around Ireland in the early 1950s. His undiscovered gem Mac is a funny and evocative memoir about the actor-manager Anew McMaster. After a dramatic reading of Harold Pinter's Mac, James Hayes then takes up the surprising story of McMaster and Micheal MacLiammor, two eccentric giants of Irish theatre, and his connections to them and Pinter. There’s even a guest appearance from a Hollywood legend. The event concludes with readings from Hayes’ own memoir, Shouting in the Evenings.
Harold Pinter, author of Mac won the Nobel Prize for Literature. James Hayes has appeared in more productions at the National Theatre than any living actor, and has the stories to match. He returns to JST following his performance in Krapp’s Last Tape.
