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?

The Everyman Theatre Company brings together a star cast including Michelle Collins and Tristan Gemmill to present Pinter’s classic and most performed darkly-comic masterpiece.

Please note the producers have cancelled this tour. We will refund bookers automatically. Should any issues arise with the refund process, we will contact bookers directly. 

6O years on, The Birthday Party has lost none of its capacity to intrigue”
