Harold Pinter's Mountain Language

Mountain Language is still very relevant (and controversial) today,

First performed at the Royal National Theatre on 20 October 1988. Time for a revival.

"Your language is dead, It is forbidden. It is not permitted to speak your mountain language in this place".
