Home, I'm Darling at the Duke of York's Theatre

Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, Laura Wade’s ‘piercingly funny’ (Time Out) new play transfers to the West End for 11 weeks only. Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, Humans) reprises her acclaimed role as Judy, in Laura Wade’s fizzing comedy about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950’s housewife.

How happily married are the happily married? Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, things start to unravel, and being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.

West End performances are at:
The Duke of York's Theatre
St Martin's Lane
