Season 2020 opens with the brilliant Olivier Award-winning comedy, Home, I’m Darling starring Nikki Shiels, Toby Truslove and Jane Turner, directed by MTC’s Associate Artistic Director Sarah Goodes.

Following a sold out run at London's National Theatre in 2018, Laura Wade’s piercingly funny Olivier Award-winning play about one woman’s quest to be the ideal 1950s housewife makes its Australian Premiere at MTC. With plenty to say about our penchant for nostalgia and society’s relentless pursuit of perfection,Home, I’m Darling offers a dreamy mix of sharp social observation and infectious laughter from start to finish.

Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling, and Judy is always looking for little ways to brighten her husband Johnny’s day. Like cocktails, dancing, warm slippers… all the usual jazz. But is their perfect 50s life a perfect lie?

Icon of Australian comedy,Jane Turner (Kath & Kim), returns for this ingenious new play starringNikki Shiels (True Minds) andToby Truslove (The Speechmaker) directed by MTC’s award-winning Associate Artistic Director,Sarah Goodes (CosÌ).
