Home, I'm Darling Tickets

London Play
Laura Wade's Home, I'm Darling transfers to the West End and will embark on a UK tour.
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.

    This is the second time I saw this show and it was just as good as the first! I originally went because I enjoyed the main actors work on the telly: Katherine Parkinson (Doc Martin) and Richard Harrington (Hinterland, Larkrise to Candleford, Bleak House...),but found a wonderfully timely story with heart, sincerity, reality and truth. As much as we might want to we cannot go back to the 'good ol' days', we must move with our times. It almost tore Jonny and Judy apart and writer, Laura Wade, may have chosen to go that way but did not. The best thing was leaving the theatre feeling hopeful, twice!

    Amazing Katherine Parkinson in funny play

    Very well produced, directed, acted and thought-provoking play. Terrific set and cast. Explores a number of themes relevant today through the lens of the 1950's. Well worth seeing.

    Restricted view on seats specified as non restricted view. Issues with the acoustics, could not hear actors and slow moving plot

  • Review Avatar Feb 3, 2019

    Unfortunately the stage is divided into sections and the action mostly takes place in the bottom right hand area. If you have tickets on the right hand side of the theatre, don’t expect to see the actors that much.

    Ok play, neither particularly funny nor poignant. Expensive seats

  • Review Avatar Feb 5, 2019

    Very light. Not entirely sure if it was just a comedy or if it was trying to say something m ore serious. The set was good. Lead actress was good. The actor playing Johnny could not always be heard clearly in the Royal Circle and he tended to rush his lines. The actress playing Alex was weak and not credible as the "boss". Overall it was quite enjoyable, but........

    Made some serious points with humour & a light touch - such as mention of our present excessive materialism, long working hours, & societies ability to accept with good heartedness some physical contact between genders in the 1950's. And perhaps more distinction could have been made between her interpretation of the 1950's ie her basic premise that " the 1950's were a kinder time" & her subsequent attempt to live as a kinder person; & the reality of that period espoused by her mother - which may have been true but was not necessary to explain as her ideas were based on a utopian intepretation of that period which served her well for an experimental life choice for a temporary period. Otherwise a very enjoyable play.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Well constructed play and beautifully acted.

    Interesting flashback to the Fifties with some neat surprises which keep you involved in the choices which are on offer; it also is a lovely bit of nostalgia - well acted and some dancing too!

    Couldn't see very much and couldn't hear everything either.

  • Review Avatar Feb 8, 2019

    Great actors. Story was a great concept and one to reflect on.

  • Review Avatar Feb 8, 2019

    Good play. Entertaining. Great acting, music, dancing, dialogue. The set was excellent though some areas were obscured by the sesting/balcony above our seating section. That was annoying.

  • Review Avatar Feb 9, 2019

    The sets and staging of the play were amazing, the only problem was that although the tickets were listed as unrestricted view, we couldn’t see the far right hand side of the stage, so was really irritating not to be able see when the actors moved to that area of the stage. Nice, sharp comedy, with an underlying message of Things are never what they seem
