Home, I’m Darling
15 January @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Following a sold out run at London’s National Theatre in 2018, Laura Wade’s piercingly funny Olivier Award-winning play is about one woman’s quest to be the ideal 1950s housewife. Judy and Johnny are a little different and they love it. They’re 1950s enthusiasts who have taken role-playing to a whole new level: Johnny’s swapped meal prep and laundry for foot rubs and cocktail hour; Judy’s swapped jeans and a job for darning and dusting.
In a house complete with a perfect pastel bathroom, mid-century knick knacks and good old fashioned home cooking, the couple live out their ultimate, nostalgic fantasy. But the 21st century has a nasty habit of forcing its way into their pristine bubble. Whether it’s in the form of Johnny’s new boss, the contemporary cost of living on a ‘50s budget or Judy’s critical mother (who actually lived through the ‘50s), the present insists on being dealt with. Three females 30-40, one 60. Two males 37, 43. (Stage ages)
