Following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old TimesIan Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to direct a new production of Harold Pinter’s landmark play The Birthday Party coming to The Harold Pinter Theatre.

Stanley Webber (Toby Jones) is the only lodger at Meg (Zoë Wanamaker) and Petey Boles’ sleepy seaside boarding house. The unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg (Stephen Mangan) and McCann disrupts the humdrum lives of the inhabitants and their friend Lulu, and mundanity soon becomes menace when a seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a disturbing nightmare. Truth and alliances hastily shift in Pinter's brilliantly mysterious dark-comic masterpiece about the absurd terrors of the everyday.

With a cast featuring a trio of Olivier Award winners, Golden Globe Award-nominated Toby Jones (The Play What I WroteEvery Good Boy Deserves FavourSherlock), Tony Award-nominated Stephen Mangan (The Norman ConquestsJeeves and Wooster, Episodes) and Tony Award-nominated Zoë Wanamaker CBE (HarlequinadePassion PlayMy Family) star in this comedy of menace.
