Family Rivalries Take to the Stage in Ealing
The Homecoming at Questors Theatre
When playwright Harold Pinter died just over a year ago, theatres in the West End and on Broadway dimmed their lights. He was one of the greatest dramatists of the twentieth century, and just three years earlier had received the highest honour of all, the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Now The Questors Theatre in Ealing are staging one of his most popular plays.
"The Homecoming" is a darkly comic drama of conflict and infidelity in a male-dominated North London family. When the eldest son Teddy returns from teaching in an American university, the appearance of his wife Ruth releases sexual rivalry between the brothers.
