Casting is now complete for the West End transfer of the National Theatre and Theatr Clwyd’s critically acclaimed co-production of Laura Wade’s Home, I’m Darling, which begins previews January 26 at the Duke of York's Theatre. Directed by Theatre Clwyd Artistic Director Tamara Harvey, performances will continue through April 13 with an official opening February 5.
The production will then tour to the Theatre Royal Bath, and The Lowry, Salford, before returning to Theatr Clwyd following a sold-out run in July 2018.

She will be joined by Sara Gregory as Alex and Richard Harrington as Johnny (for the West End run only, with tour casting for the role of Johnny to be announced), reprising the roles they played at Theatr Clwyd and the National Theatre in 2018.
The cast will be completed by Charlie Allen, Susan Brown as Sylvia, Ellie Burrow, Siubhan Harrison as Fran, Jane MacFarlane, and Hywel Morgan as Marcus.
The production will also have set design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by by Lucy Carter, sound design by Tom Gibbons, and choreography by Charlotte Broom.
