Harold Pinter's ''The Homecoming'' is the final production in the Youngs-town Playhouse's 2011-12 Griffith-Adler Series.
The play, winner of four 1967 Tony Awards including Best Play, centers around a husband and wife. After having lived in the United States for several years as a successful professor of philosophy, Teddy brings his wife, Ruth, home for the first time to meet his working-class family in North London. Ruth feels more at home in this atmosphere compared to their arid academic life in America.
Much sexual tension occurs as Ruth teases Teddy's brothers and father, and the men taunt one another in an Oedipal game of oneupmanship, resulting in Ruth's staying behind with Teddy's relatives as "one of the family" and Teddy returning home to America and their three sons without her.
David El Hatton directs the Playhouse production, which feature Tom O'Donnell, Tom Jones, Chuck Kettering, Johnny Pecano, Matt White and Brandy Johanntges. The stage manager is Becca Kopchec.
''The Homecoming'' will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and June 1-2 in the Moyer Room at Youngstown Playhouse. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and senior citizens. For reservations or more information, call 330-788-8739.
