The Birthday Party

Show Information

A comedy of menace. Stanley may or may not play the piano, and today may or may not be his birthday, and he may or may not be hiding from someone in Meg’s boarding house where he’s lived for a year. But he’s definitely made nervous by news that two new boarders are about to arrive, and she’s definitely throwing him a party. The Birthday Party, Pinter’s first produced full-length play, propelled him into the front rank of British dramatists. His other plays include The Homecoming, Betrayal, and Old Times (2009 City Lit). His screenplays include The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Sleuth, and The Handmaid’s Tale. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005.

We understand not everyone is comfortable being in a crowd without masks yet, so City Lit still requires masks for our Sunday matinee performances. Masks are encouraged but no longer required for Friday, Saturday and our 2 Monday performances. City Lit staff will continue to mask for all performances.
