The show will open at Theatre Royal Bath from 30 March 2022 before travelling to Cambridge Arts Theatre, Malvern Theatre, Leicester Curve, Theatre Royal Brighton, Newcastle Theatre Royal, and Theatre Royal York.
Mathew Horne will play Lenny, Teddy’s enigmatic brother. He will be joined on stage by comedian and musician Keith Allen who will play the brutal patriarch, Max.
Four time Olivier Award nominee Ian Bartholomew will play Sam. Teddy will be played by Sam Alexander. Geoffrey Lumb, recently seen in the West End in Hilary Mantel’s The Mirror and The Light, will appear as Joey. Shanaya Rafaat will take on the role of Ruth.
Teddy, a professor in an American university, returns to his childhood home accompanied by his wife, Ruth, 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 fought out with taut verbal brutality. Who will emerge victorious – the poised and elegant Ruth or her husband’s dysfunctional family?
The Homecoming is presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions. Director Jamie Glover, Designer Liz Ascroft, Lighting Designer Johanna Town, Sound Designer Max Pappenheim, Associate Director Amy Reade, Casting Director Ginny Schiller CDG.
