The Birthday Party

Harold Pinter’s comedy of menace gets a dramatic new re-imagining.

Following a 2 year celebration of the works of Harold Pinter in the West End the Everyman Theatre Company presents his most popular and widely performed play The Birthday Party.

Set in a dilapidated seaside boarding house the mysterious Stanley Webber receives a visit from two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann. They arrive on Stanley’s birthday – or is it? What do they want and why do they want to turn Stanley’s quiet world upside down?

Paul Milton, Creative Director of the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, brings together a star cast to present Pinter’s classic and most performed darkly-comic masterpiece.

 

'Harold Pinter is the most original writer to have emerged from the “new wave” of dramatists who gave fresh life to the British theatre in the fifties and sixties.' - THE TIMES

'60 years on, The Birthday Party has lost none of it’s capacity to intrigue' – THE GUARDIAN

'Mr Pinter’s terrifying blend of pathos and hatred fuses unforgettably into the stuff of art' – SUNDAY TIMES

 

Written By: Harold Pinter
Directed by: Paul Milton
