The Birthday Party

January 10–February 4, 2018
Toni Rembe Theater

Kevin Berne

In an undisturbed seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the unsettling arrival of two strangers—who sent them and why do they keep asking about the sole boarder, piano player Stanley? A seminal work that has inspired artists from David Lynch to Quentin Tarantino, The Birthday Party is a Pinter classic of “tantalizing theatricality” (The New York Times), seething with mystery, sexuality and sudden humor.
