Jealousy, Family tensions Erupt During The Homecoming
Solana Beach, CA. – THE HOMECOMING is often regarded by critics as Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter’s most enduring play. Set in an all-male household that relies on fantasy and one-upmanship for its very existence, it is a searing masterwork of family warfare. The family’s toxic, but familiar pattern is disrupted by the arrival of a long-absent son and his new wife. Her presence ignites an explosive situation, one that is vicious, funny and unsettling. Although written more than 50 years ago, the play explores issues about power, sexuality and self-identity that are still debated today. This Tony winner for Best Play is must-see theatre for the serious playgoer. Directed by David Ellenstein. For mature audiences only.
David Ellenstein directs Frank Corrado*, Richard Baird*, James Newcomb*, Justin Gordon*, Bruce Turk*, and Melanie Lora* in THE HOMECOMING. The design team includes Marty Burnett (Resident Scenic Designer), Matthew Novotny (Lighting), Elisa Benzoni (Costumes), Philip Korth (Props), & Victoria Hanlin (Dialect Coach). Christopher M.
