The Birthday Party 50 years on


Iain Fisher:
The Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London is presenting The Birthday party from 8-24 May 2008.

This is special because this is the theatre which held the world premiere exactly 50 years earlier, on 19 May 1958.  The original production ran for eight performances before it closed under the deluge of bad press.  And on 19 May 2008 there is a special gala performance- will Pinter be there?
