Ian Rickson directs Toby Jones, Zoe Wanamaker and Stephen Mangan in Harold Pinter's darkly comic thriller. Read More


Stanley Webber (Toby Jones) is the only lodger at Meg (Zoe 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.

Following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old Times, Ian Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to direct a new production of Harold Pinter's landmark play, The Birthday Party. With a cast featuring a trio of Olivier Award winners, Golden Globe Award-nominated Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock), Tony Award-nominated Stephen Mangan (The Norman Conquests, Jeeves and Wooster, Episodes) and Tony Award-nominated Zoe Wanamaker CBE (Harlequinade, Passion Play, My Family) star in this comedy of menace.

The Birthday Party opens in January 2018 for a strictly limited 14 week season. Further casting to be announced.
