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!

Brilliantly acted performance by a stellar cast of one of the most ambiguous plays ever written. Will keep us talking about its meaning and ending for a very long time to come.

An incomprehensible play - had to google it later on to understand what it was all about! Acting good, especially enjoyed McAnn and Stanley.

A group of us enjoyed the play but never having experienced a Pinter play before we left the theatre asking ourselves and each other lots of questions. The performance was strong and we felt that the play was extremely well put together. We will not forget it!!
