Eve Best Joins Cast of Pinter's 'The Homecoming'

Tony Award-nominee Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten) joins the cast of the 40th Anniversary revival of Harold Pinter's Tony Award-winning masterpiece The Homecoming.  The production begins performances on Friday, November 23. It will open Sunday, December 9 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street) for a 20-week limited engagement through April 13.

Eve Best received Tony and Olivier nominations as well as Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards for her performance in The Old Vic Theatre production of A Moon for the Misbegotten. Her London stage credits include Hedda Gabler (Olivier and Critics' Circle Awards); Mourning Becomes Electra (Critics' Circle Award); Three Sisters; The Coast of Utopia; The Misanthrope; Macbeth; The Heiress; The Cherry Orchard; and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore (Evening Standard and Critics' Circle Awards).

Best joins previously announced Golden Globe Award-winner Ian McShane ("Deadwood"), two-time Tony-nominee Raul Esparza (Company, The Normal Heart) and Oscar-nominee Michael McKean (The Pajama Game, Hairspray). Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan (Rabbit Hole, Proof) directs.

"Undoubtedly Pinter's most sexually provocative work, The Homecoming is an edgy and compelling tale of lust, betrayal and seduction, telling the story of a dysfunctional family that welcomes the homecoming of its estranged brother and competes for the attention of his dangerously alluring wife," describe press notes.

The award-winning design team will include Eugene Lee, Kenneth Posner, Jess Goldstein and John Gromada.
