The Jamie Lloyd Company storms the West End with the definitive revival of Harold Pinter's masterpiece, THE HOMECOMING, in the 50th anniversary year of the multi award-winning modern classic.
The sinisterly captivating fusion of dark humour and brooding intensity is brought to the forefront in this astonishing, multi-layered and critically acclaimed production.
THE HOMECOMING is a psycological thriller. When Teddy returns from America to introduce his wife Ruth to his family in London, they discover a claustrophobic and brutal household where his father Max, brothers Lenny and Joey and Uncle Sam live in a state of mutual loathing and festering resentment. Theirs is a motherless, compassionless and lawless home where Ruth immediately becomes the centre of attention. Pinter's sinister masterpiece simmers with suspense and rings with savage humour as Ruth navigates her way between the roles of predator and prey in an incisive battle of wills.
Celebrated as one of the leading interpreters of Pinter's work, director Jamie Lloyd has assembled an impeccable ensemble cast of Keith Allen, John Simm, Gemma Chan, Ron Cook, Gary Kemp and John Macmillan.
THE HOMECOMING runs at the Trafalgar Studios for a limited season from the 14th November 2015 until the 13th February 2016. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
The Stage: 4 stars ****
"A bold, unnerving 50th anniversary revival which ably demonstrates that Pinter's classic still has the power to shock."
The Guardian: 4 stars ****
"Pinter's play continues to puzzle, astonish and delight."
Evening Standard: 4 stars ****
"A lean and controlled interpretation that captures the enigmatic originality of Pinter's terrifying vision."
Time Out: 4 stars ****
"It's a vision of testosterone-charged hell."
"Lloyd delivers an evening that is intense, committed and often - because of the dialogue - darkly funny."
The Times: 4 stars ****
"It's a colourful, horrible, sometimes horribly funny evening that time has not tamed."
The Arts Desk:
"More than a masterful revival - it's a rebirth."
