DUKE OF YORK'S THEATRE
HOME I'M DARLING (play)
Ends 13th April
A couple tries to keep their marriage lively, even as it unravels.
Laura Wade's new play, seen last summer at the Dorfman Theatre, now
comes to the west End. Katherine Parkinson stars.
(seen at the Dorfman Theatre - afternoon performance on 5th September 2018.
Some actors have now left the cast).
The monkey wasn't impressed by this. The best of the acting came from the wise
parent - the anchoring moment of a play which needed the slap that it got.
It's one thing to pretend, another to truly believe in the fantasy. While we are
sold sometihng credible in the writing, we are really given little exploration
or balance. Why does a strong woman allow herself to be led, and why should the
man be the "fall guy" in all this? As a dissection of gender politics the
investigation cannot go far due to this flaw.
Still, the set is colourful (if impractical - but don't worry if sitting where
you can't see upstairs, nothing happens out of view) and it has its moments.
3 stars was the monkey verdict.
