Stanley Webber is visited in his boarding house by strangers, Goldberg and McCann.  An innocent-seeming birthday party for Stanley turns into a nightmare.

The Birthday Party was first presented at the Arts Theatre, Cambridge, in April 1958, and transferred to the Lyric Opera House, Hammersmith. It is now a modern classic, produced and studied throughout the world.
