The Sunday Times


A.C.T. returns to the world of Harold Pinter for our first staging of his classic drama The Birthday Party, featuring A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli, Tony Award–winner Judith Ivey, and Stratford Festival star Scott Wentworth.

In an undisturbed English seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the arrival of two unsettling strangers. Where do the mysterious Goldberg and McCann come from? Who sent them? And why do they keep asking about the sole boarder, piano player Stanley? As the party guests, including flighty Lulu and flirty landlady Meg, gather for Stanley’s birthday, the desperate pianist is forced to confront a surreal interrogation. Seething with mystery, danger, and sudden humor, this is signature Pinter, a play of “tantalizing theatricality” (The New York Times).
