What's the play about?

homecoming2The Homecoming is considered by many critics to be not just Harold Pinter's, but one of the twentieth century’s, masterpieces. A long-absent son and his attractive wife, return to his contentious childhood home, still occupied by his father and two younger brothers. Plunged into a misogynistic household, the wife’s intelligence and sexual charisma begins to control the family. Caught in a power struggle, father and sons vie for the wife’s attention and affection with outrageous consequences, and the family becomes the ultimate combat zone in this darkly witty drama by one of the defining playwrights in modern theatre.

The Director, Roger de Toney, writes “The story of family dysfunction will resonate with many audiences and one should always remember: you can go home again, but you’ll pay the consequences. The clash over who does the dishes, ate the last snack or sits in the most comfortable chair are reflective of many family gatherings”

It is particularly exciting to be presenting this wonderful play 50 years on from its first performance in 1965. The original production was presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company in London before transferring to Broadway in 1967, where it won a Tony Award for Best Play.
