Home, I’m Darling

Date: 24 Feb 2020

Judy is a picture-perfect ‘50s housewife. She spends her days making the perfect devilled eggs, mixing the perfect Screwdrivers and being the perfect homemaker to her husband Johnny.

They’re totally happy with their pastel-hued life. The only problem is, it’s not the 1950s, it’s now, and Judy and Johnny’s dream world is starting to come apart at the perfectly sewed seams.

Fresh from winning the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Home, I’m Darling is full of big skirts and even bigger questions. How can we cope with the pressures of modern life? What do we lose in the present when we pine for the past? And can you get stains out of a shirt with just lemon juice and baking soda?

Jessica Arthur directs. Andrea Demetriades, Chantelle Jamieson, Tracy Mann, Kirsty Marillier, Yalin Ozucelik and Anthony Taufa feature.
