A Darkly Comic Experience

“The Birthday Party” runs through Oct. 8 at The Playhouse.

According to a review in The Greenville News, Furman’s production of Harold Pinter’s “The Birthday Party” demonstrates that the show is “more than just an actor’s showcase.”  The play also “retains a crude comic power and mystery that’s uncomfortably contemporary.  It’s almost a mashup of the surrealist work of Franz Kafka with the off-kilter thrills of Quentin Tarantino.”
