The Homecoming

by Harold Pinter

22nd - 29th March 2008 at 7.45pm in The Ron Barber Studio Theatre
Matinee 29th at 2.45pm

Pinter's black comedy remains pretty much as sharp, sleek and shocking as ever
(Sarah Hemmings – Financial Times).

After a six year absence, prodigal son Teddy arrives home to pay his family a visit with his wife Ruth, who settles into the household as if into a well-known niche. Teddy’s decidedly odd brothers and his domineering father all take it for granted that she is anyone’s for the asking – and she is. It is then suggested that they should set her up in trade, in a little flat in Soho.

Calmly Ruth lists the conditions she requires before accepting, barely batting an eyelid as Teddy returns to America.

Pinter's still shocking portrait of a dysfunctional male family group and their dubious sexual politics is brought this time to the Crescent Theatre.
