The Birthday Party Paperback
Part of the Acting Edition S. series
Goldberg and McCann arrive at a seaside boarding house where Meg and Petey live with their guest Stanley.
They inquire about Stanley: we soon find out that McCann and Goldberg have a job to do.
Learning it is his birthday they give Stanley a party at which Stanley is verbally bludgeoned into submission.
The next day Stanley is removed. It is the collective impact of the dialogue which welds they seemingly inexplicable actions of Goldberg and McCann into a menacing whole.
