Sunday 9 December 2007 20:00-21:35 (Radio 3)
By Harold Pinter.
Electrifying audiences when it was first performed in 1965, The Homecoming has quickly established itself as a modern classic.
In this production for BBC Radio, Pinter himself takes on the role of Max, the head of the Hackney family to which a professor and his wife return one night from America. There, amongst the shadows of the past and the realities of the present, a compelling drama unfolds.
