"I want to propose a toast to Stanley, because it’s his birthday..."
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 at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London, The Birthday Party. Starring in Pinter’s comedy of menace are Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock), 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).
Stanley Webber is the only lodger at Meg and Petey Boles’ sleepy seaside boarding house. The unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg and McCann disrupts the humdrum lives of the inhabitants and their friend Lulu, 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.
