The Homecoming, Pinter's finest play.
Coming to Trafalagar Studios from 14 November 2015
The dangerous and tantalisingly ambiguous world of The Homecoming is a crackling hot bed of visceral tension. Celebrated as one of the leading interpreters of Pinter’s work, Jamie Lloyd has assembled an impressive ensemble cast in what promises to be a dynamic production. Not to miss!
The Jamie Lloyd Company returns to the West End with Harold Pinter's enigmatic masterpiece, The Homecoming, in the 50th anniversary year of the multi award-winning modern classic.
Jamie Lloyd was the Associate Director of the Donmar Warehouse until 2011, where his production of Passion won the Evening Standard Award for Best Musical. Jamie was an Associate Artist at theatre company Headlong as well.
He directed The Pride at the Royal Court, for which he won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.
Starring Keith Allen (Sam), Gemma Chan (Ruth), Ron Cook (Max), Gary Kemp (Teddy), John Macmillan (Joey) and John Simm (Lenny).
The Homecoming is a contemporary masterpiece of the 20th Century. This 50th anniversary production will continue The Jamie Lloyd Company's unparalleled reputation for presenting compelling drama that sparks passionate debate.
Design by Soutra Gilmour. Lighting design by Richard Howell. Sound by George Dennis.

Well casted...well directed. I liked the set and music
Paul Murdin14th February
Stark and forceful play, about verbal and sexual violence. The production was as forceful as the script, very strongly acted.

Excellent acting, great drama and a plot that makes you think. London theatre at its best. Thank you
David Watson12th February
Excellent acting all round Would happily see it a second time
Felicia Wilde12th February
Strang play but excellent acting by all the company. Wonderful direction. So glad I saw it. The music was far too loud.

I found it difficult! I'd seen Pinter before "The Caretaker"and "The Hothouse". They too presented me with problems. I think the set and costumes caught the period, and the acting, except for Gary Kemp, was first rate. But I had a real problem making any sense of the play. As my theatre companion remarked maybe none was intended. The theatre was packed to the rafters which cranked up the atmosphere and enhance the play's own feeling of claustrophobic family setting.

Totally worth all the money I spent! It was amazing and I'm glad that I had the chance to see this. I had a great seat and I don't think it could have been any better. Thanks a lot!

Excellent production, only spoilt by the gentleman sitting next to me objecting to my husband and friend laughing at the dialogue, then pointedly said 'Pinter doesn't do comedy' !

A really good performance, but I still think it was too expensive!

I thought Jemma Chan's robotic 2D performance meant the play lack the dramatic tension that was needed to convey Pinter's emotive and desperate intentions. Ruth is the linchpin around which the play revolved and Chan did not connect w her fellow actors. Sims and Allen were perfect.

first half very good, second half didn't sustain the drama for me.
Carol Louise Ellerby-Jones17th January
Didn't think the stylised setting did the text any favours - the subtlety of the play was lost in this heavy handed interpretation Not helped by fact that theatre has small seats so other people invade your personal space!
