Katherine Parkinson in Home, I’m Darling
First look at Katherine Parkinson and the cast of Home, I'm Darling which opens at the National Theatre later this month. The IT Crowd and Humans actress plays Judy in this unsettling new comedy by about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife .... in 21st century England. The cast includes Poldark's Richard Harrington, Kathryn Drysdale (The Ruling Class) most recently seen playing Meghan Markle on Channel 4 comedy The Windsors, Barnaby Kay (A Streetcar Named Desire), Sara Gregory (S4C drama series Alys) and leading actress Sian Thomas (Fram, The Taming of the Shrew). Written by Laura Wade (Posh),  Home, I'm Darling "is a scalpel-wielding dissection of the fetishisation of wifeliness, a 21st-century cultural cul-de-sac populated and policed almost entirely by women. The 1950s ideal of cupcakes and cocktails, vintage clothes and village fetes, is all good squeaky-clean fun at one level. But as Wade identifies, this icing sugar-drenched life is not as sweet as we might imagine." Guardian The play is directed by Tamara Harvey with design by Olivier Award-winning Anna Fleischle, lighting by Lucy Carter, sound by Tom Gibbons and choreography by Charlotte Broom.   [ngg_images source="galleries" container_ids="551" display_type="photocrati-nextgen_basic_imagebrowser" ajax_pagination="1" template="default" order_by="sortorder" order_direction="ASC" returns="included" maximum_entity_count="500"]Find tickets to the West End transfer of Home, I'm Darling here> Home, I'm Darling runs from 24 July until 5 September 2018 at the Dorfman Theatre, National.
