Coming Home 5
More good reviews of Athol Fugard's Coming Home have arrived.

Leslie Katz in the San Francisco Examiner writes: 

"Key to this production’s success are standout performances by Roslyn Ruff as Veronica and Thomas Silcott as Alfred, whose changing emotions, feelings and physical health are revealed in their every word, song and body movement. They sell every line of Fugard’s often lyrical dialogue. Their ongoing friendship, which evolves over a course of years in the play’s two acts, forms the backbone of this compelling piece."

Read the entire review.

Zachary Ritter wrote a review for The Daily Californian that really should be read in its entirety. Read the article.

The East Bay Express wrote a nice feature on Coming Home. Read it here. And director Gordon Edelstein was interviewed on KPFA's Against the Grain. Listen to the show.

And finally, here's the Coming Home trailer. Please enjoy.
