There’s a gentleman living here. He’s got a birthday today, and he’s forgotten all about it. So we’re going to remind him. We’re going to give him a party.

A shabby boarding house in a small English seaside town.

An elderly couple take care of a solitary guest, who rarely ventures out.

The arrival of two enigmatic strangers seems to offer a welcome distraction from their mundane existence.

But when an impromptu, seemingly innocent birthday party abruptly turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse, there are horrifying repercussions.

By turns, cryptic thriller and macabre comedy, The Birthday Party was Harold Pinter’s first major work and is among the most unusual and absorbing of his plays.

London Classic Theatre presents the first significant touring revival of the twenty-first century, promising to bring this ground-breaking classic to fresh and exhilarating life.

London Classic Theatre have recently visited the Belgrade with Absent Friends, Entertaining Mr Sloane and Equus.
