The full cast has been announced for the upcoming West End production of Harold Pinter’s play The Birthday Party, which opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre in January.

Joining the previously announced Zoë Wanamaker (Meg), Stephen Mangan (Goldberg), Toby Jones (Webber) and Pearl Mackie (Lulu), will be Peter Wight as Petey Boles ad Tom Vaughan-Lawlor as McCann.
