The Birthday Party

by Harold Pinter
Directed by Carey Perloff
 

January 10–February 4, 2018
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
415 Geary Street, San Francisco

Running Time: 2 hours 20 minutes, with one intermission

Delicious, impalpable and hair-raising
The Sunday Times


A star-studded cast takes the Geary stage as A.C.T. returns to the mysterious world of Harold Pinter in our first staging of his groundbreaking play The Birthday Party. Tony Award winner Judith Ivey joins Stratford Festival star Scott Wentworth and A.C.T. favorites Marco Barricelli and Firdous Bamji for this darkly comic British drama.

In an undisturbed seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the unsettling arrival of two strangers—who sent them and why do they keep asking about the sole boarder, piano player Stanley?

A seminal work that has inspired artists from David Lynch to Quentin Tarantino, The Birthday Party is a Pinter classic of “tantalizing theatricality” (The New York Times), seething with mystery, sexuality, and sudden humor.
