Infidelities and mistaken identities abound when Bernard decides to have a
birthday party for his mistress—with his wife in attendance!
It's 1983 in the UK. Margaret Thatcher is in power, the me-first era is in full force, and a group of affluent friends gathers for an evening of polite debauchery. Like all best laid plans, though, it doesn’t take long for Bernard’s charade to unravel, leaving only the working-class maid-for-hire to keep
the weekend afloat—and give this raucous party a lesson in how to
really have your cake and eat it too!
Happy Birthday was a long-running success in London and
we are thrilled to present this Philadelphia premiere!
Una farsa rápida y sensacional sobre el amor, el matrimonio, la clase social,
y lo que significa trabajar duro por el dinero—Feliz Cumpleaños fue un éxito de larga duración en Londres y estamos encantados de presentar este estreno en Filadelfia!
