Pull-Tight Players to Present Award-Winning Dark Comedy, Home, I’m Darling
Pull-Tight Players in downtown Franklin is excited to present the delightful British, Olivier Award-winning dark comedy, Home, I’m Darling by Laura Wade.
Home, I’m Darling was first performed at Theatre Clwyd in Wales in 2018, then transferred to London, and has been delighting audiences on both sides of the pond ever since.
When Judy sets out to become the perfect 1950s housewife, she and Johnny are living the dream. They have a beautiful home, he has a promotion on the horizon, and she revels in the joys of domesticity. But cracks begin to appear that threaten their domestic bliss. This fun look at grass-is-greener thinking and gender roles asks important questions about what men and women might want and how they might find it.
Director Pat Street says, “We had a great turnout for auditions and have selected a thrillingly talented cast. This is definitely an ensemble show, with characters who go through a full range of emotions, and a little jitterbugging thrown in for good measure. Every actor truly has to stretch and carry their weight, and we have the exact right group to do that.”
Street adds that audiences will be delighted with the “period” set décor, furnishings, music, and dance bits.
“This play is everything good theatre should be. It pokes some fun, offers up some nostalgia, and asks some important questions. But what I loved about it from the moment I first read the play was it just made me feel good. We can all use that right now.”
The cast includes Chelsea Craig as Judy, Bryan Kratoska as Johnny, Debbie Kraski as Sylvia, John Scamardella as Marcus, Jennifer Bennett as Fran, and Erin Knight as Alex.
Home, I’m Darling is presented by arrangement with Knight Hall Agency Ltd.
Show dates are Feb. 2-4, 7-11, and 14-17. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. January 22, and can be purchased online at Pull-Tight.com (while supplies last). Pull-Tight Theatre is in the heart of downtown Franklin at 112 2nd Avenue South. Free parking is available in the Second Avenue Parking Garage adjacent to the theatre.
