Mathew Horne and Keith Allen are to star in a tour of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming.
Theatre Royal Bath Productions will launch a brand new production of the Tony Award-winning show at Theatre Royal Bath from 30 March.
Directed by actor and director Jamie Glover, The Homecoming will star Mathew Horne (BBC’s Gavin & Stacey, Death in Paradise, Bad Education) as Lenny, and actor, comedian and musician Keith Allen (The Young Ones, The Pembrokeshire Murders, Pinter 3 in the West End) as Max.
Further cast is to be announced soon.
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?
The Homecoming runs at Theatre Royal Bath between 30 March and 9 April 2022 with tickets on sale now from theatreroyal.org.uk.
The show will then run at Cambridge Arts Theatre from 11 April 2022 with further tour dates to be announced.
