The Homecoming

Tue 04 Jun - Wed 05 Jun

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. Teddy hasn’t seen his home in six years. When he brings back his wife to introduce her to his working class male driven family, this is an introduction he will soon regret. Along the way, Ruth meets Max, the aging but still aggressive patriarch; his younger, ineffectual brother Sam; and two of Max’s three sons, neither of whom is married — Lenny, a small-time pimp, and Joey, who dreams of success as a boxer. Ruth’s interactions with these men talk on a tale of deceit, emotional blackmail and seduction and change the lives of everyone involved. 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.
