“The Birthday Party” (1957) still stands today as a testament to Pinter’s unwavering commitment to exploring and uncovering the hidden aspects and ambiguities of human nature.
In this work, there is a unique representation of a dialogue between the power of the language manipulation and the process of verbal lobotomy. The manipulation of words becomes a weapon, as language is used for control and dominance. In this way, Pinter breaks the boundaries of theatrical traditionalism and shows the fragility of human communication.
Pinter’s humanism, pacifism, and righteousness are evident in his decades of relentless political activism and unwavering commitment to exposing social injustices.
A theatrical performance with a psychological character, which introduces a new cinematic language of direction and acting, which will amaze the audience.
