    Take your first look at Toby Jones, Zoë Wanamaker, Stephen Mangan and Pearl Mackie in the brand new West End production of The Birthday Party, now in previews at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

    Stanley Webber is the only lodger at Meg and Petey Boles’ sleepy seaside boarding house. The unsettling arrival of enigmatic strangers Goldberg and McCann disrupts the humdrum lives of the inhabitants and their friend Lulu, 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.

    Ian Rickson reunites with Sonia Friedman Productions to direct this new production of Harold Pinter’s landmark play, following critically-acclaimed productions of Betrayal and Old Times.

    The Birthday Party stars a trio of Olivier Award winners, Golden Globe Award-nominated Toby Jones (The Play What I Wrote, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Sherlock), Tony Award-nominated Stephen Mangan (The Norman Conquests, Jeeves and Wooster, Episodes) and Tony Award-nominated Zoë Wanamaker CBE (Harlequinade, Passion Play, My Family), joined in this comedy of menace by Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time). The cast also includes Peter Wright (The Red Lion, Waiting for Godot) and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (The Plough and the Stars).
