A NEW play which had its première in Mold last year will open in the West End this week.

Home I’m Darling is directed by Tamara Harvey and features Katherine Parkinson, star of TV’s Doc Martin, The IT Crowd and Humans, and Richard Harrington from the detective drama series Hinterland.

Laura Wade’s dark comedy about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife is a Theatr Clwyd production in partnership with the National Theatre on London’s South Bank. It was a hit with critics and audiences when it opened in Mold, playing to full houses in July 2018 before transferring to the National’s Dorfman stage later in the year, where it also sold out.

It opens at the Duke of York’s Theatre in Covent Garden this week, and continues in the West End until April 13. It will then tour to Bath and Salford before returning to Mold from April 30 until May 4.

The production features sets, costumes and props all made by the in-house teams in Theatr Clwyd’s production departments and workshop, working in collaboration with the National Theatre. The show is presented in the West End and on tour in partnership with theatre producers Fiery Angel.
