The team that brought Waiting for Godot to Cheltenham is back, re-imagining Harold Pinter’s menacing comedy, The Birthday Party, which premieres in Cheltenham before hitting eight more UK towns and cities.
Launching the national tour at the Everyman Theatre, from Thursday 2 April until Saturday 11 April 2020, the all-star cast includes Michelle Collins and Tristan Gemmill, with creative director Paul Milton at the helm.
Following the story of a solitary man in a small English seaside town, Stanley Webber receives a visit on his birthday from two strangers, before the pair turn his world upside down.
Arguably one of Pinter’s most unusual and absorbing plays, the Everyman Theatre promises a ‘dramatic new reimagining’, ahead of the national tour which also takes in Salford, Oxford, Guildford, Edinburgh, Norwich, Cardiff, Richmond and Milton Keynes.
