The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party Theatre breaks

About the show

Following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old Times, Ian Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to direct a major new revival of Harold Pinter’s brilliantly mysterious dark-comic masterpiece, The Birthday Party.

Starring in this comedy of menace are Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock, Atomic Blonde), Stephen Mangan (The Norman Conquests, Jeeves and Wooster, Episodes), Zoë Wanamaker CBE (Harlequinade, Passion Play, My Family), Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (All My Sons, Peaky Blinders, The Infiltrator) and Peter Wight (Hamlet, Electra, Atonement).

What to expect from The Birthday Party

Stanley Webber (Toby Jones) is the only lodger at Meg (Zoë Wanamaker) and Petey Boles’ (Peter Wight) sleepy seaside boarding house. The unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg (Stephen Mangan) and McCann (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) disrupts the humdrum lives of the inhabitants and their friend Lulu (Pearl Mackie), and mundanity soon becomes menace when a seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a disturbing nightmare. Truth and alliances hastily shift in Pinter's landmark play about the absurd terrors of the everyday.
