'I want to propose a toast to Stanley, because it's his birthday...'

Stanley Webber (Toby Jones) is the only lodger at Meg (Zoë Wanamaker) and Petey Boles’ sleepy seaside boarding house. The unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg (Stephen Mangan) and McCann disrupts the humdrum lives of the inhabitants and their friend Lulu (Pearl Mackie), and mundanity soon becomes menace when a seemingly innocent birthday party turns into a disturbing nightmare. Truth and alliances hastily shift in Pinter's brilliantly mysterious dark-comic masterpiece about the absurd terrors of the everyday.

Following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old Times, Ian Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to direct a new production of Harold Pinter’s landmark play The Birthday Party. With a cast featuring a trio of Olivier Award winners, Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock), Stephen Mangan (The Norman Conquests, Jeeves and Wooster, Episodes) and Zoë Wanamaker CBE (Harlequinade, Passion Play, My Family); who are joined in this comedy of menace by Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time).

Further casting to be announced.

Ian Rickson’s new production of The Birthday Party will be designed by the Quay Brothers, with lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker, music by Stephen Warbeck and casting by Amy Ball.
