The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party

Harold Pinter’s most popular and widely performed play comes to Oxford in this dramatic new re-imagining.

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?

The Everyman Theatre Company present Pinter’s darklycomic masterpiece following a two year celebration of his work in the West End.

Starring Michelle Collins and Tristan Cemmill. Also starring David Carr.
