Review of "The Birthday Party - Harold Pinter"
This is truely one of the best plays i have ever read, seen or performed. It is so subtly sinister. Its an in your face drama without being in your face. Its riveting, yet nothing happens. The passage of time for a sleepy seaside guesthouse contains madness, emotional breakdowns, yet leaves you feeling like youve just chatted with a nextdoor neighbour. It is a play of opposites, and contradictions. The play is deffinately a credit to Pinter, how any man can derive such humour from a breakfast of cornflakes and fried bread is beyond me. The play is so dark and yet is truely innocent. i would fully recomend it to anyone looking for a good read or a riviting watch.
