Guide for the Homesick by Ken Urban | Huntington Theatre

October 18th through November 4th, 2017

A Haunting World Premiere...flawlessly directed by Colman Domingo
— Broadway World
Director Colman Domingo has fostered an atmosphere of mutual trust between his leads... he has also wisely paced the show to accentuate the rising tension in Urban’s script... Domingo takes what could be a theatrical limitation — the ‘kitchen sink’ confines of a hotel room, and explores its opportunities for staging and movement. The result is a beautiful and captivating visual experience.
— Arts Fuse
“Homesick,’’ now receiving its world premiere at the Huntington Theatre Company under the astute direction of Colman Domingo, steadily gains power and ultimately more than rewards your attention.
— The Boston Globe
Under the confident direction of Colman Domingo, the action ricochets between the separate events that still haunt Teddy and Jeremy and the consequences of deeds undone that has settled a blanket of shame over them.
— Theatermania
