The Birthday Party at Everyman Theatre

Monday 6 to Saturday 11 April 2020

Editor's Choice

Please note, this event has been postponed. Michelle Collins and Tristan Gemmill star in the Everyman Theatre's own production of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, before the cryptic play goes on a UK tour.

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.
