The Homecoming

Wed, December 4, 2019 @ 7:45 pm - 10:45 pm

By Harold Pinter
Directed By Ruby McIlroy

Teddy hasn’t seen his family in six years. When he brings home his wife to introduce her to his working class male driven family, but this is an introduction he will soon regret. A tale of deceit, emotional blackmail and seduction change the lives of everyone involved

Homecomings are an exciting time for families and loved ones, but Pinter’s version of this “homecoming” is anything but traditional, and what appears realistic quickly shifts into parody. The Homecoming has been subject to mass debate over the past forty years, and is still regarded today as one of Pinter’s most absurd plays.
