Harold Pinter: A Question of Timing focuses on the ways in which Pinter conceives of and dramatises time according to the particular medium with which he is working. It goes beyond Pinter's obvious fascination with false and true memory to trace the various textual and non-textual strategies he employs to distort sequence and duration in his plays. Further, it shows how Pinter undermines the temporal assumptions of naturalism and realism to form a uniquely relativistic world in which time is a central feature.
