Opening Tomorrow Night!


FLATWATER SHAKESPEARE and THE HAYMARKET PRESENT
"THE HOMECOMING"

APRIL 15 - MAY 2 AT THE HAYMARKET THEATRE

Harold Pinter's The Homecoming has been described as "perhaps the most cruel play ever written and certainly one of the funniest." It's a devastating look at the ties that bind families together. It explores the fine line between love and hate – and wonders if such a line exists at all.

The setting is a working-class neighborhood in North London in the 1960s. Max, a retired butcher, lives in an old house there with his brother, Sam, and his two younger sons, Lenny and Joey. One night, Max's oldest son, Teddy, returns for a visit with his wife, Ruth. As the play unfolds, the tensions, power struggles, nostalgia, and resentments continue to build.

Director Bob Hall – Nebraska's 2010 Artist of the Year – is also featured as the family patriarch, Max. Rob Burt is the modern-day prodigal, Teddy, and Melissa Lewis Nuss is Ruth. Scott Glen appears as Sam, while Nathan Weiss and Jeff Tinnean play Lenny and Joey.
