A FAMOUS playwright’s link to Worthing has been honoured.
The Worthing Society conservation group unveiled a blue heritage plaque in Ambrose Place to commemorate the late Harold Pinter, who lived there for about 18 months during the 1960s.
The society commissioned the memorial after the idea was suggested by Paul Holden, editor of the Argus’s sister publication Worthing Sentinel.
About 50 people applauded as Worthing mayor Noel Atkins revealed the plaque, which reads: “Harold Pinter, 1930-2008, playwright, actor and director lived here 1962-1964.”
David Sumner, chairman of the Worthing Society, said Pinter wrote one of his bestknown plays, The Homecoming, while in Worthing.
He added that Ambrose Place was one of the town’s architectural treasures.”
