The National Theatre and Theatr Clwyd’s critically acclaimed co-production of Home, I’m Darling, a new play by Laura Wade directed by Theatre Clwyd Artistic Director Tamara Harvey featuring Katherine Parkinson, will transfer to the West End, in a co-production with Fiery Angel.
Home, I’m Darling will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 26 January until 13 April 2019. Tickets for the West End transfer will go on sale on Friday 9 November. Home, I’m Darling then will tour to the Theatre Royal Bath and The Lowry, Salford, immediately following the West End run.
Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, Humans) reprises her acclaimed role as Judy, in Laura Wade’s fizzing comedy about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950’s housewife. Theatr Clwyd Artistic Director Tamara Harvey directs, with design by Anna Fleischle. Further casting to be announced.
How happily married are the happily married? Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, things start to unravel, and being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.
Artistic Director of Theatr Clwyd Tamara Harvey said: “I began this journey with two of the most glorious partners anyone could hope for in Laura Wade and Katherine Parkinson. Several years and children later, we realised Home, I’m Darling in what has been a very happy and collaborative co-production between Theatr Clwyd and the team at the National Theatre. It’s an utter privilege to have the opportunity to revisit the production in the West End and on tour. We are now joined by Fiery Angel, as well as the National Theatre, in realising these next steps, and it’s testament to the strength and quality of our home grown work in Wales, that our co-production will reach so many across the UK.”
