Photo Flash: A First Look at American Conservatory Theater's THE BIRTHDAY PARTY
American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) rings in 2018 with the first staging of Harold Pinter's mysterious classic drama, The Birthday Party (January 10-February 4, 2018). In an undisturbed English seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the arrival of two unsettling strangers. Where do the mysterious Goldberg and McCann come from? Who sent them? And why do they keep asking about the sole boarder, piano player Stanley? As the party guests, including flighty Lula and flirty landlady Meg, gather for Stanley's birthday, the desperate pianist is forced to confront a surreal interrogation. Featuring A.C.T. favorites Marco Barricelli and Firdous Bamji, two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey, and Stratford Festival star Scott Wentworth, The Birthday Party is seething with mystery, danger, and sudden humor. Single tickets (ranging from $15-$110) are available at the A.C.T. Box Office at 415.749.2228 or online at www.act-sf.org. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
