(potent pause) Productions presents The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter.

In a small shabby boarding house at a coastal resort lives a man, his wayward wife and their boarder who has been with them for a year. He is a strange chap, unkempt and in flight from we know not what. Enter an even stranger, sleek London/Jewish man, and his muscle bound Irish henchman. The wife accommodates them with a room and then they decide that it is time for their boarder to have a birthday party. At the party she arranges, the new guests play cruel games with the boarder, break his glasses, make a buffoon of him, and push him over the psychotic precipice. The next morning he is reduced to a gibbering idiot and meekly leaves with them.

"The most interesting play to be seen on Broadway." - The New York Times.
“Comedy of menace” - The Times.
“Masterly work of drama” - London Theatre.
