Following a 2 year celebration of the works of Harold Pinter in the West End the Everyman Theatre Company presents his most popular and widely performed play 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.

Best known for her roles as Cindy Beale in EastEnders and Stella Price on Coronation Street, Michelle has graced our screens and stage for over 30 years. In addition to notable television roles in Real Women, Dr Who and Casualty, her stage credits include Calendar Girls, Rattle of Simple Man, The Vagina Monolgues and Never Forget.

Tristan Gemmill is widely recognised for his role as Robert Preston in Coronation Street and for playing Dr Adam Trumen in the much loved medical drama Casualty. Screen roles have seen him starring alongside Adrian Brody and Kiera Knightley in The Jacket and The Curse of the Midas Box with Michael Sheen and Sam Neil.

Reviews

‘Harold Pinter is the most original writer to have emerged from the “new wave” of dramatists who gave fresh life to the British theatre in the fifties and sixties.’

The Times

’60 years on, The Birthday Party has lost none of it’s capacity to intrigue.’

The Guardian

‘Mr Pinter’s terrifying blend of pathos and hatred fuses unforgettably into the stuff of art’
