Following a sold out run at London's National Theatre in 2018, Laura Wade's piercingly funny Olivier Award-winning play about one woman's quest to be the ideal 1950s housewife makes its Australian Premiere at MTC. With plenty to say about our penchant for nostalgia and society's relentless pursuit of perfection, Home, I'm Darling offers a dreamy mix of sharp social observation and infectious laughter from start to finish.
Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling, and Judy is always looking for little ways to brighten her husband Johnny's day. Like cocktails, dancing, warm slippers... all the usual jazz. But is their perfect 50s life a perfect lie?
Featuring a stellar cast including Peter Paltos (Gloria), Nikki Shiels (True Minds), Toby Truslove (The Speechmaker), Jane Turner (Kath & Kim), Izabella Yena (Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears) and Susie Youssef (No Activity), directed by MTC's award-winning Associate Artistic Director, Sarah Goodes (CosÌ).
