There's something about The Birthday Party in particular that's so raw and committed - it has this kind of anarchic punk spirit and I'm so excited to direct it!

Ian Rickson

Why See The Birthday Party?

I Propose A Toast!

Following critically acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old Times, the incredible Ian Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to the direct this revival of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party. With a leading cast featuring Olivier Award-winning Toby Jones as Stanley Webber, Stephen Mangan as Goldberg, Doctor Who's Pearl Mackie, and Zoe Wanamaker CBE as Meg it's sure to be an outstanding production.

About The Birthday Party

Stanley Webber is the only resident at Meg's hostel, but the peace is disturbed when strangers Goldberg and McCann arrive. The calm soon turns into chaos when a seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a living nightmare. Truth and alliances promptly shift in this brilliant dark-comic masterpiece about the ludicrous terrors of the everyday.

Did You Know?

The production marks the 60th Anniversary of the play (aptly-named I'd say!), which originally opened in Cambridge in 1958 and later that same year it transferred to London. The play is often referred to as a "Comedy of Menace" and was made into a film in 1968 by William Friedkin.
