Nobel laureate returns to Great White Way with revival

Everyone’s talking about Harold Pinter this week.

The British playwright and Nobel laureate will return to Broadway with a revival of his 1965 play “The Homecoming.” Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, the producers behind “Glengarry Glen Ross” and the upcoming “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial,” have secured the rights for a Broadway production aiming for the 2006-07 season.
