Gareth Saxe Joins Esparza, Best in 'The Homecoming'

Gareth Saxe who made his Broadway debut in the recent revival of Heartbreak House joins the cast of the 40th Anniversary revival of Harold Pinter's Award-winning masterwork The Homecoming. The cast also includes Golden Globe Award-winner Ian McShane ("Deadwood"), two-time Tony-nominee Raul Esparza (Company), Tony-nominee Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten) and Oscar-nominee Michael McKean (The Pajama Game).

Saxe will portray Joey, a boxer in training and the youngest son of Max (Ian McShane). His previous stage credits include Richard III and The Winter's Tale (Public Theatre); The Wax (Playwrights Horizons); iWitness (Mark Taper Forum); Sexual Perversity in Chicago (American Conservatory Theatre); Pericles (Old Globe); and The Rivals (Huntington).

Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan (Rabbit Hole, Proof) directs the production which begins performances on Friday, November 23; opening Sunday, December 9 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street) for a 20-week limited engagement thru April 13.

"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," explain press notes.

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