Event ended

Please note, this has been postponed. Michelle Collins and Tristan Gemmill star in the Everyman Theatre's own socially-distanced production of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, in January 2021, 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 Wednesday 27 January to Saturday 6 February 2021, the all-star cast includes Michelle Collins, Tristan Gemmill and David Carr, with creative director Paul Milton at the helm.

The Birthday Party follows the story of solitary man Stanley Webber in a small English seaside town, who 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.

The Birthday Party at the Everyman Theatre was originally scheduled for April 2020, with all tickets transferred to the new 2021 dates.
