Moments from The Homecoming

Here’s a video of the scene in “The Homecoming” with Lenny and Ruth and the glass of water. Lenny tries to intimidate Ruth with his stories and by trying to take the ashtray and her glass but she manages to intimidate and confuse him. This video also shows how in the next scene Lenny tries to gain power over Max by questioning him about what he knows about the night he was conceived, suggesting that maybe Max is not his real father. This video is a good demonstration of the power struggles that go on in the play, and how these fairly simple conversations are actually menacing.
