The Birthday PartyA trio of Olivier Award winners, Toby Jones, Zoe Wanamaker and Stephen Mangan, star in Harold Pinter's darkly comic thriller about a birthday party at a seaside boarding house. Proceedings descend into disarray when two enigmatic strangers arrive and disrupt the humdrum lives of the residents. This new production of The Birthday Party at the Harold Pinter Theatre comes 60 years after the play's debut. Ian Rickson, artistic director at the Royal Court from 1998 to 2006, who directed Pinter himself in his last performance as an actor in Krapp's Last Tape, directs.

 

About Harold Pinter Theatre

The Harold Pinter Theatre's 1881 interior is one of the oldest in London and one of the most charming, in spite of the damage wrought by an ill-considered restoration in 1954. The Renaissance-style auditorium, with its wooden panels, and gold ceiling and wallpaper, still retains many original features, while the unpretentious exterior is the most attractive and unspoilt among London's smaller theatres.
