Michelle Collins, Tristan Gemmill, and Paul Hickey star in:

The Birthday Party

by Harold Pinter


Harold Pinter’s comedy of menace gets a dramatic new re-imagining.

Following a 2 year celebration of the works of Harold Pinter in the West End, the Everyman Theatre Company presents his most popular and widely performed play The Birthday Party.

Set in a dilapidated seaside boarding house the mysterious Stanley Webber receives a visit from two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann. They arrive on Stanley’s birthday – or is it? What do they want and why do they want to turn Stanley’s quiet world upside down?

Paul Milton, Creative Director of the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, brings together a star cast to present Pinter’s classic and most performed darkly-comic masterpiece.
