Every marriage needs a little fantasy to keep it sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, being a domestic goddess isn’t as easy as it looks…
When Judy sets out to become the perfect 1950s housewife, the Martins are living the dream. Johnny has a beautiful wife, a beautiful home, and a promotion on the horizon. Judy is revelling in the joys of domesticity; making cakes, cocktails, and homemade marmalade. But cracks are starting to appear in this beautiful façade which threatens their domestic bliss.
Home, I’m Darling was first staged at The National Theatre in 2018, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and was nominated for the UK Theatre’s Best New Play.
Laura Wade’s clever play doesn’t so much sing the praises of the good old days as show us that “nostalgia ain’t what it used to be”.
Warning: This production contains some strong language and adult themes.
With well-planned choreography, excellent attention to detail and great chemistry between the cast, this classy, thought-provoking production proved to be wonderful entertainment.” – Emma Wild
