Why See The Birthday Party?
blow out your candles
Harold Pinter's second full-length play, The Birthday Party is widely considered one of his finest, a fine example of his signature 'comedy of menace' style. Don't miss your chance to be unsettled when this new production takes to the road on a UK tour in 2020, starring Michelle Collins, Tristan Gemmill and Paul Hickey as the unlucky denizens of a backwater boarding house.
What's the story?
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 black comedy masterpiece about the ludicrous terrors of the everyday.
