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...

BAFTA-winner Jessica Ransom (Doc Martin, Armstrong and Miller, Horrible Histories), Diane Keen (Doctors, The Cuckoo Waltz) and Neil McDermott (EastEnders, The Royal) lead the cast in this thought-provoking new comedy by Laura Wade (Posh/The Riot Club) about one woman's quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife.

Home, I'm Darling received its world premiere at Theatr Clwyd in 2018 before running at the National Theatre, and transferred to the Duke of York's Theatre in the West End, winning the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
