It has been announced that the Jamie Lloyd Company is returning to the West End for a 50th anniversary production of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming, starring Keith Allen, Gemma Chan, Ron Cook, Gary Kemp, John Macmillan and John Simm.
The Homecoming is widely considered to be Pinter’s finest play, filled with danger and tension and directed by one of the leading interpreters of Pinter’s work.
Talking about his latest production for the company, Jamie Lloyd said: “This is a significant anniversary for this iconic, game-changing play and I couldn’t be more excited to be creating it with this dynamic cast of powerful actors. This production is the first project from our company’s new and ambitious slate of work that I can’t wait to announce over the coming months.”
When Teddy arrives home from America to introduce his wife Ruth to the family, they discover a home filled loathing and resentment. It is a motherless and lawless home where Ruth immediately becomes centre of attention, having to navigate between the roles of predator and prey in this battle of wills.
The Jamie Lloyd company is a collaboration between acclaimed director Jamie Lloyd and the Ambassador Theatre Group. Previous productions include Richard III (Martin Freeman), East is East (Jane Horrocks) and Macbeth and The Ruling Class starring James McAvoy.
The Homecoming will open for previews on the 14th November until the 13th February 2016. Tickets are on sale for ATG theatre card holders and on general sale on Tuesday 22nd September from 10am. For more information on the show visit: http://thejamielloydcompany.com/our-shows/the-homecoming
