Why See Home, I'm Darling?
West End Transfer
Nominated for 2018 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play
Laura Wade's critically acclaimed play, Home, I'm Darling is transferring to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre this January. Katherine Parkinson will return to reprise her role as one woman determined to be the perfect 50s housewife.
Heralding as her first play since her ground-breaking Posh, Wade's Home, I'm Darling dives behind the potential facade of a 'happy marriage'. In this unsettling new comedy Wade steps behind the closed doors asking, what does it take to really be happily married? Tamara Harvey returns to direct the Evening Standard Award nominated production, which is co-produced with Theatre Clwyd and Fiery Angel.
What is Home, I'm Darling about?
Judy is obsessed on being the perfect 50s housewife. With decor straight from the post-war era Judy and her husband Johnny are quite the enigma to their more modern friends. However as cracks begin to show the gingham curtains are thrown wide open as Judy discovers that perhaps being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.
Previews from: 26 January 2019
