A U.K. tour of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming, directed by Jamie Glover, launches March 30 at Theatre Royal Bath before traveling to Cambridge Arts Theatre, Malvern Theatre, Leicester Curve, Theatre Royal Brighton, Newcastle Theatre Royal, and Theatre Royal York.
Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey, Death in Paradise) stars as Lenny with Keith Allen (The Young Ones, Pinter 3) as Max, four-time Olivier nominee Ian Bartholomew (Into the Woods, Radio Times) as Sam, Sam Alexander (Emmerdale, The Watsons) as Teddy, Geoffrey Lumb (The Mirror and The Light) as Joey, and Shanaya Rafaat (Around the World in 80 Days, Doctor Who) as Ruth.
The Homecoming, which won the 1967 Tony for Best Play, concerns a professor in an American university who returns to his childhood home with his wife to find his father, uncle, and brothers still living there. In the subsequent series of encounters, life becomes a barely camouflaged battle for power and sexual supremacy.
The tour has designs by Liz Ascroft, lighting design by Johanna Town, sound design by Max Pappenheim, associate direction by Amy Reade, and casting by Ginny Schiller.
The Homecoming is presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions.
