Harold Pinter’s Tony Award winning play returns to Broadway for its 40th Anniversary. The Homecoming, considered one of Pinter’s greatest plays, begins previews on November 23, 2007 at the Cort Theatre. The official start date for this limited engagement is December 9, 2007. This sexually charged play is a compelling tale of the consequences we pay for wanting what we can’t have and doing anything to get it.

The production is set in an old London home as the play follows the return of the eldest son after a six year absence. He returns home to his father, two brothers and an uncle bringing with him his new bride. As one can imagine the introduction of a woman into this all male clan creates a strained atmosphere and causes a shocking turn of events in this already dysfunctional family. Tensions build upon the homecoming as they welcome the estranged son home and competitions heat up as they all vie for the attentions of his alluring wife who continually taunts them. This creates a lurid tale of lust, betrayal and seduction. Can this family survive what comes next?

The production first debuted in London in 1965 by the Royal Shakespeare Company and transferred to Broadway’s Music Box Theatre in 1967 where it received four Tony Awards including Best Play, Best Actor, Best Features Actor and Best Direction. The play was written by Pinter and is described as his most sexually provocative work. This award winning writer recently won the Nobel Prize for literature and some of his other works include No Mans Land and Betrayal.

The Homecoming features six characters five of them men. The talented cast brings with them much experience to this production. The ensemble is led by Golden Globe winner Ian McShane in the role of the family patriarch. He has enjoyed a long stage career in London and is best known for his role as the Devil in the West End’s production of The Witches of Eastwick in 2000. Two time Tony Award nominee Raul Esparza portrays one of the brothers who is also a small time pimp. Esparza was last seen on Broadway earlier this year as Bobby in the revival of Company for which he was Tony nominated. In the role of the only woman is Tony nominated and Drama Desk Award winner Eve Best. She was most recently seen on Broadway for her 2007 Tony nominated performance in A Moon for the Misbegotten where she starred opposite Kevin Spacey. Also featured in the cast is Broadway favorite Michael McKean who has made a name for himself in Hairspray and The Pajama Game, but he is probably best known for his long running role as Lenny on the sitcom Laverne and Shirley.

This edgy revival will have the audience captivated from the beginning and the course the play takes will leave them stunned. The themes throughout the play are sexually explicit and at times violent so this show is for mature audiences only. The storyline, the writing, cast and crew all contribute to make for a fascinating theater experience. One you won’t want to miss but go soon as this limited engagement is set to close in April of 2008.
