“They’re very warm people, really. Very warm. They’re my family. They’re not ogres”

Harold Pinter’s 1960s masterpiece is widely regarded as his finest play. This bleakly funny exploration of family and relationships has become a modern classic and winner of the Tony Award for Best New Play.

Teddy, a professor in an American university, returns to his childhood home accompanied by his wife, Ruth, to find his father, uncle and brothers still living there. In the subsequent series of encounters, life becomes a barely camouflaged battle for power and sexual supremacy fought out with taut verbal brutality. Who will emerge victorious – the poised and elegant Ruth or her husband’s dysfunctional family?

Star of BBC’s Gavin & StaceyMathew Horne (Death in Paradise, Bad Education)is perfectly cast as Lenny, Teddy’s enigmatic brother. Versatile actor, comedian and musician Keith Allen (The Young Ones, The Pembrokeshire Murders, Pinter 3 in the West End) plays the brutal patriarch, Max.

“Fifty years after its London premiere, Harold Pinter’s play continues to puzzle, astonish and delight.” Guardian

“Half a century after it put Harold Pinter at the forefront of British drama, The Homecoming can still leave audiences so provoked, puzzled and pleased” The Times

“One is clearly in the presence of a modern classic” Daily Telegraph

“An excellent night – a man in total command of his talent” Observer
