Abbie Finn plays Pinter

Durham County Youth Big Band, Durham Alumni Big Band, Leeds College of Music, Trinity Laban and now...Harold Pinter. 

Masters graduate Abbie Finn is well known to jazz audiences from Tyneside down to Teesside and beyond. A finals' recital behind her, drummer Finn is about to tread the boards in Harold Pinter's Night School. The Pinter Theatre (formerly the Comedy Theatre) on Panton Street in London's West End, is hosting a Pinter at the Pinter season. Award-winning drummer Abbie has been cast in the playwright's early '60s work which is to be directed by Ed Stambollouian.

Abbie the thespian is, no doubt, news to many readers of this blog! Abbie informed Bebop Spoken Here that in addition to being a member of the on-stage cast, she will be behind the traps...now that's the Abbie we know!

A trip to London to take in the sights, perhaps a gig, then sign up for Night School (Nov 1 - Dec 8). The Pinter Theatre box office number is 0844 871 7622. Book now!
