Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House

HOME, I’M DARLING

By Laura Wade
Directed by Jessica Arthur

Everything new is old again

Judy is a picture-perfect ‘50s housewife. She spends her days making the perfect devilled eggs, mixing the perfect Screwdrivers and being the perfect homemaker to her husband Johnny. They’re totally happy with their pastel-hued life. The only problem is, it’s not the 1950s, it’s now, and Judy and Johnny’s dream world is starting to come apart at the perfectly sewed seams.

Fresh from winning the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Home, I’m Darling is full of big skirts and even bigger questions. How can we cope with the pressures of modern life? What do we lose in the present when we pine for the past? And can you get stains out of a shirt with just lemon juice and baking soda?

Helmed by Resident Director Jessica Arthur (Lethal Indifference) with an ensemble including Andrea Demetriades (Arms and the Man) and Anthony Taufa (How to Rule the World), this witty, highly-original and thought-provoking comedy takes a look at the complexity of women’s choices and the dangers of nostalgia through distinctly rose-coloured glasses.

“An amusing, affecting, inspiring evening of soft gingham and hard truths." The Times UK
