The Homecoming - 2015 - West End

The Jamie Lloyd Company storms the West End with the definitive revival of Harold Pinter's masterpiece, The Homecoming, in the 50th anniversary year of the multi award-winning modern classic.

The sinisterly captivating fusion of dark humour and brooding intensity is brought to the forefront in this astonishing, multi-layered and critically acclaimed production.

The Homecoming is a psychological thriller. As Ruth and her husband Teddy return to the family home, a riveting game of sexual warfare, morality and power combine to make a hotbed of ever increasing uneasiness.
