The Birthday Party

Sonia Friedman Productions presents

The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter

Following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal, and Old Times, Ian Rickson directs an Olivier Award-winning cast in a new production of Harold Pinter’s dark-comic masterpiece The Birthday Party, featuring Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock), Stephen Mangan (The Norman Conquests, Jeeves and Wooster, Episodes), Zoë Wanamaker (Harlequinade, Passion Play, My Family), and Pearl Mackie.

Stanley Webber (Tony Jones) is the only lodger in a sleepy seaside boarding house run by Meg (Zoë Wanamaker) and Petey Boles. That is – until the unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg (Stephen Mangan) and McCann disrupts the humdrum lives of the trio and their friend Lulu. As a seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a disturbing nightmare, mundanity becomes menace, and truth and alliances hastily shift.

The Birthday Party opens in January 2018 for a strictly limited run of 14 weeks. Book your tickets for The Birthday Party at The Harold Pinter Theatre in London today!

  • Clearly Confused !

    23 January 2018

    Yes well, the acting was wonderful, and the dialogue distinct, but the words were clearly being used to impress someone with a lot more brain cells than me. That a fair proportion of the audience laughed in places where there was little if anything to laugh at seems to indicate that others were also confused. The cheering at the end was clearly to express thanks to the cast for putting so much effort into such a convoluted story line rather than the story itself. Not recommended unless your very clever and probably talk loudly in restaurants.

  • A very difficult play to review!

    23 January 2018

    If you seek hours of debate after this rather sinister and dark play has ended (trying to work it all out!) this is for you... but don't expect answers as Pinter ensures that there are none! Those who prefer raindrops and roses, a nice ending with a satisfying conclusion should look elsewhere. Well staged and acted by all and absorbing ( after a rather slow start), and some moments of humour too, but it is not a play which really allows the wonderful Zoe Wannamaker to show-case her usual riveting talent. I was somewhat disappointed with the evening, but I now know I should have done my homework before booking, as I am clearly not a fan of Pinter!

  • Birthday in Pinter Land

    21 January 2018

    Great ensemble acting in this first full length play by Pinter. Experimental in many ways with unconvincing passsges, but the sardonic wit and baffling ambiguities are there in embryo. Definitely worth the trip

  • Fabulous and dark!

    20 January 2018

    Harold Pinter plays are funny things - you love them for their darkness and complexity, and that's exactly what I felt. I thought the cast was STUNNING and couldn't stop looking at the characters lips as they spoke. I am a hug fan of Zoe and Toby so I was enthralled to see them working together. I loved Zoe in that role and may even try to get back and see the play again. BRAVO!!!
