In 1965 The Homecoming premiered at London’s Aldwych Theatre. In 1967 it went to Broadway where it won the Tony Award for Best Play and became a driving force behind Pinter’s 2005 Nobel Prize. It was a sizeable rotation in drama, accentuating the spoken word as weapon and the unspoken word as eloquence, and it was a potent child of the 1960s, though plays are one of the less differentiated (less recognized) of the arts invigorated by the cultural revolution. This was the play that established Pinter, and we apologize for the redundancy, but again, this is the best copy of it in the world.
