Full cast for the West End transfer of Laura Wade's Home, I'm Darling has been announced.

The piece, which stars Katherine Parkinson, follows a woman's quest to be the perfect '50s housewife. It first premiered at Theatr Clwyd (and is directed by the venue's artistic director Tamara Harvey) before transferring to the Dorfman Theatre at the National in summer 2018. The show garnered positive reviews, including a four-star write up from WhatsOnStage critic Sarah Crompton.

Appearing alongside Parkinson in 2019 will be Sara Gregory (Alys) as Alex and Richard Harrington (Hinterland) as Johnny (for the West End run, with tour casting for the role of Johnny to be announced) who reprise their roles after performing at the National Theatre and Theatr Clwyd.

Joining the cast will be Charlie Allen (The Albatross 3rd and Main), Susan Brown (Angels in America) as Sylvia, Ellie Burrow (Love In Idleness), Siubhan Harrison (Guys and Dolls) as Fran, Jane MacFarlane (Exit the King) and Hywel Morgan (Imperium) as Marcus.

The set designer is Anna Fleischle, with lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Tom Gibbons, choreography by Charlotte Broom with Sean Gleason as associate lighting designer, and Hannah Noone as resident director.

The piece runs in the West End from 26 January, with opening night on 5 February. It will then tour to Theatre Royal Bath, The Lowry and will return to Theatr Clwyd in July 2018.
