Sir David Hare Wins Pen/Pinter Prize

Posted on September 5, 2011

British playwright Sir David Hare has won this year's Pinter literary prize. The award for British writers was established in 2009 in memory of Nobel-winning playwright Harold Pinter.

David Hare will be presented with the prize at a public event at the British Library on October 10th. The British Library is the home of Harold Pinter's archive.

Lady Antonia Fraser, Harold Pinter's widow, said, "In the course of his long, distinguished career, David Hare has never failed to speak out fearlessly on the subject of politics in the broadest sense; this courage, combined with his rich creative talent, makes him a worthy winner of the PEN/Pinter Prize."
