The UK premiere of Will Eno’s play The Open House is running at the Ustinov Studio in Bath until 23 December, before transferring to London in January.
The Open House offers a darkly comedic take on the archetypal family drama.
The production stars Teresa Banham (A Chorus of Disapproval, West End; Heresy of Love, RSC) as Mother; Greg Hicks (Richard III, Arcola Theatre; The Tempest, RSC) as Father; Lindsey Campbell (Right Now, The Harvest, The Big Meal, Ustinov Studio) as Daughter; Crispin Letts (The Entertainer, An Inspector Calls, West End) as Uncle; and Ralph Davis (King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) as Son.
Son and Daughter have come home to celebrate their mother and father’s wedding anniversary, but the atmosphere is strained, and the dog is nowhere to be seen. Just as they hit stalemate things start to take a very unexpected turn.
The Open House is the second play in the Ustinov Studio’s season of International UK Premieres following Daniel Kehlmann’s new thriller Christmas Eve.
After its run in Bath, the show will play at Notting Hill’s Print Room at the Coronet from January 18-February 17.
