Photo Flash: Charlie Rose & 'The Homecoming' Honor Pinter

The 40th anniversary revival of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming recently began rehearsals.  A special event was held last night, Sunday October 28 at the British Consulate Residence in honor of Harold Pinter. Charlie Rose, a dear friend of Pinter's and the last person to conduct a major interview with the playwright, was the featured guest and screened their most recent interview (from last fall).  Pinter is currently in England and was not on-hand for the event.

"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 cast includes two-time Tony-nominee Raul Esparza (Company, The Normal Heart), Golden Globe Award-winner Ian McShane ("Deadwood"), Tony-nominee Eve Best, Oscar-nominee Michael McKean (The Pajama Game, Hairspray) and Gareth Saxe.

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.

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