This review is from: The Birthday Party (Acting Edition) (Paperback)
I first saw a production of The Birthday Party when I was at school, and was instantly struck by it. It's typical Pinter; very bleak and a somewhat depressing look at life, but is still a gripping read and is even more effective in the theatre. The speech is very rhythmic, and the way in which it speeds up and slows down lends much to it being a really scary (and confusing) play.
