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 their dream world is about to come crashing down in hilarious style.
Fresh from winning the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Home, I’m Darling is full of big laughs, big skirts and big 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) and featuring Andrea Demetriades (Arms and the Man), (Anthony Taufa (How to Rule the World), Yalin Ozucelik (1984) and Kirsty Marillier (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), 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
