Bold Productions & Aberystwyth Arts Centre present THE BIRTHDAY PARTY By Harold Pinter     

Bold Productions & Aberystwyth Arts Centre present THE BIRTHDAY PARTY By Harold Pinter Stanley Webber, an erstwhile piano player in his 30s, lives in a rundown boarding house, run by Meg and Petey Boles, in an English seaside town. Two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann, arrive and turn Stanley's apparently innocuous birthday party organized by Meg into a nightmare……


Harold Pinter's ‘The Birthday Party’ was the playwright's first commercially produced, full-length play. He began writing the work after acting in a theatrical tour, during which, in Eastbourne, England, he had lived in "filthy insane digs."


There he became acquainted with "a great bulging scrag of a woman" and a man who stayed in the seedy place.

The flophouse became the model for the rundown boarding house of the play and the woman and her tenant the models, respectively, for the characters of Meg Boles and Stanley Webber.
