April reading: The Homecoming (1965) by Harold Pinter

  • April 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • ACT rehearsal space

"In an old and slightly seedy house in North London there lives a family of men: Max, the aging but still aggressive patriarch; his younger, ineffectual brother Sam; and two of Max's three sons, neither of whom is married -- Lenny, a small-time pimp, and Joey, who dreams of success as a boxer. Into this sinister abode comes the eldest son, Teddy, who, having spent the past six years teaching philosophy in America, is now bringing his wife, Ruth, home to visit the family she has never met. As the play progresses, the younger brothers make increasingly outrageous passes at their sister-in-law until they are practically making love to her in front of her stunned but strangely aloof husband."

As always, you must bring your own copy of the script.  PDFs are available in the More -> Files section of this meetup.

    Sorry, I have out of town guests overnight. Guess I will rent the Netflix version of this play which I have never seen on stage.
