Eve Best has joined the cast of the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming. The production, to be directed by Daniel Sullivan, will begin performances at the Cort Theatre on November 23, with an official opening set for December 9.

As previously reported, the cast will incude Raul Esparza, Michael McKean, and Ian McShane. The design team will include Eugene Lee (set), Kenneth Posner (lights) and Jess Goldstein (costumes). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

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, a boxer-in-training. Tensions begin to flair with the arrival of Max's eldest son Teddy, 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.

Best received a Tony nomination, and won both Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, for her work as Josie in last season's revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten.
