The Birthday Party

Stanley Webber is visited in his boarding house by two strangers, Goldberg and McCann. An innocent-seeming birthday party for Stanley soon turns into a nightmare.

The Birthday Party, when first premiered, was misunderstood by many critics. However, one praised the play, stating: “Pinter has got hold of a primary fact of existence. We live on the verge of disaster.”

The Birthday Party is now viewed as Pinter’s masterpiece, a play which explores the unknown, the limits of communication, and truth.

The Birthday Party is presented by The Dilys Guite Players
