About this Article

Unlike the Super Bowl, when the lights go out in "The Birthday Party," the play goes on. And if you think that makes it tough to tell what exactly is happening in Harold Pinter's deliberately disjointed drama, it doesn't get much easier in the full bright lights of the new center-placed stage at Steppenwolf's Upstairs Theatre.
