Furman Theatre to Present Pinter’s “The Birthday Party”
Furman University Theatre in Greenville will present The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter Sept. 28-Oct. 1 and Oct. 6-8 at 8 p.m., with matinee showings Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 at 3 p.m. All performances take place at The Playhouse on campus. In Pinter’s frightening play first performed in 1958, Stanley Webber is guest of honor at his own non-birthday party. He is cajoled into playing a bewildering game of blind man’s buff and is humiliated throughout the “party,” which turns his carefully chosen place of respite into a trap. Directed by Rhett Bryson. Tickets $10-$18.
