THE BIRTHDAY PARTY
by Harold Pinter
directed by Richard Harder
In Harold Pinter's early masterpiece, the quite routine of Meg and Petey's seaside
boarding house is disrupted by the appearance of two strangers, Their sudden arrival unnerves Stanley, a morose longtime lodger. As Meg prepares a birthday surprise for
Stanley (who insists it is not his birthday), the menacing strangers circle like sharks.
After many drinks, the evening descends into a shadowy nightmare,
and a mysterious dread remains."
