The Birthday Party
03 May 2016 - 07 May 2016
London Classic Theatre
In a shabby boarding house in a small English seaside town an elderly couple take care of a solitary guest who rarely ventures out. The arrival of two enigmatic strangers seems to offer a welcome distraction from their mundane existence, but when an impromptu, seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse, there are horrifying repercussions.
The Birthday Party was Harold Pinter's first major work and is among the most unusual and absorbing of his plays. London Classic Theatre presents its first significant touring revival of the twenty-first century, promising to bring this ground-breaking classic to life.
Playwright, director, actor, poet and political activist, Harold Pinter, was born on 10 October 1930. He wrote twenty nine plays including Betrayal, Old Times, The Homecoming and The Caretaker. In 2005, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.
