The full company has been announced for Chichester Festival Theatre’s revival of David Storey’s award-winning 1970 play HOME, running at the Minerva Theatre from 8 October – 6 November.
Josh Roche directs Leon Annor, Hayley Carmichael, Daniel Cerqueira, Doña Croll and John Mackay.
Harry and Jack. Marjorie and Kathleen. Alfred. In a neglected garden, small talk oscillates between the weather, the neighbours, reminiscences of friends and family, and anecdotes of past exploits in love and war.
But this quintet of characters, with their foibles and failings, are not what they seem to be, and nor is their home. And overhead, the clouds are gathering.
HOME has become a modern classic – a heartrendingly funny, haunting and deeply humane study of hearts, minds and England: islands adrift.
