Home was David Storey's second play to be produced at the Royal Court in 1970, transferring to the Apollo theatres and then to the Morosco Theatre, New York. This award-winning play (Evening Standard Drama Critic Award and the New York Drama Critics Award) is probably best remembered for the performances of John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Dandy Nicholls, Mona Washbourne and Warren Clarke. The director of Home, Lindsay Anderson, had previously collaborated with David Storey on the 1963 version of Storey's novel This Sporting Life with Richard Harris and Rachel Roberts.
The play begins with two gentlemen strolling on a terrace of what appears to be a country home. It is only as the play progresses and we meet the other characters that we realise that all may not be as it at first appears.
"A most rich and compassionate play. It is funny, sprightly and uplifting... HOME speaks with an inner voice... The writing is extraordinarily pungent. Its skill is in capturing a spontaneity and freezing it into art. A lovely play, a sad play, and a play to lose yourself in, to trust implicitly and go with all its ebbing and flowing currents of pain and humour." - Clive Barnes, New York Times.
