Smart, splashy and wonderfully funny. There's never a dull moment onstage. A meeting of dauntingly innovative theatrical minds. You've never seen a musical like 'Soft Power'

Why See The Birthday Party?

You are cordially invited

An innocuous birthday party in an English seaside boarding house dissolves into a surrealist nightmare that could only be executed by Pinter in this A.C.T first production of the late playwright's second work. Menacing, mysterious and bubbling with the thinly disguised peril that became his signature move, fans of the man and his work will be stilled in their seats by his early treatise of human nature and the ambiguity within.

In a run-down and isolated boarding house pianist Stanley, the only boarder is being thrown an impromptu party by proprietor Meg and the twenty-something Lulu. When the celebration is interrupted by two strangers asking more and more questions, the fun is quickly replaced by a terrifying and malevolent interrogation, the motive of which is as enigmatic as the gatecrashers themselves.
