British actor James Frain will play Teddy in the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming. The production, to be directed by Daniel Sullivan, will begin performances at the Cort Theatre for a 20-week engagement starting on November 23, and will now open on December 13.

As previously reported, the cast will include Ian McShane, Eve Best, Raul Esparza, Michael McKean, and Gareth Saxe. The design team will include Eugene Lee (set), Kenneth Posner (lights) and Jess Goldstein (costumes).

The Homecoming concerns the ultimate dysfunctional family, presided over by its patriarch Max (McShane). Living under his dilapidated roof are his younger brother Sam (McKean), and two of his sons: Lenny (Esparza), the town pimp, and Joey (Saxe), a boxer-in-training. Tensions begin to flair with the arrival of Max's eldest son Teddy (Frain), who returns home after six years with his new wife Ruth (Best). The play's Broadway premiere in 1967 won the Tony Award for Best Play.

Frain's London stage credits include Other People, King Lear, and She Stoops to Conquer. His film and television credits include Elizabeth, Hilary and Jackie, The Count of Monte Cristo, Prime Suspect 3, and Showtime's The Tudors.
