Home, I'm Darling

National Theatre · 24 JUL - 05 SEP

A co-production with Theatr Clwyd.


How happily married are the happily married?

Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, things start to unravel, and being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.
