British actor James Frain will make his Broadway debut in Harold Pinter's The Homecoming as Teddy, which completes the cast of the forthcoming 40th anniversary Broadway revival. Frain joins the previously announced Ian McShane, Raul Esparza, Eve Best, Michael McKean and Gareth Saxe in the production, which will be directed by Daniel Sullivan. The Homecoming begins performances on November 23 at the Cort Theatre and will open on December 13.
The Homecoming, an edgy and compelling tale of lust, betrayal and seduction, tells the story of a dysfunctional family that welcomes the homecoming of its estranged brother Frain and competes for the attention of his dangerously alluring wife Best. McShane plays the patriarch, McKean is his brother, and Esparza and Saxe are the other two sons.
Frain, who is currently appearing as Thomas Cromwell in the Showtime television series The Tudors, was born in Leeds, England, and a graduate of London's Central School of Speech and Drama. London theater credits include Christopher Shinn's Other People for the Royal Court, Edmond in King Lear for the Almeida, Hastings in She Stoops to Conquer for The Peter Hall Company and Nick Dear's Zenobia for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Film credits include: Shadowlands, Elizabeth, Hilary and Jackie, The Count of Monte Cristo, Sunshine, Where the Heart Is and Titus.
