Find Your Way Home is a full-length drama by John Hopkins. Gritty realism was often the hallmark of John Hopkins' work, and Find Your Way Home is no exception. Relationships are put to the test and ripped apart when a husband and father, resolves to finally leave his wife for his younger male lover, who is in the midst of a very dark and disturbing period in his life.

Find Your Way Home is about a clandestine affair between Alan Harrison, a middle-aged married man with teen‐age children, and his younger male lover Julian. Alan has tried to break off the affair. Julian is ready to take him back after almost a year, but their reunion becomes a scalding triangle when Alan's wife discovers and confronts both men in shock and outrage by the revelation of her husband's secret life. The second act becomes almost a self contained play as Alan and his wife lacerate each other in a brilliant and ruthless dissection of modern marriage and parenthood.

Find Your Way Home premiered in 1970 at Open Space Theatre in London. It opened in 1973 on Broadway at Brooks Atkinson Theatre, transferred in 1974 to the Biltmore Theatre, and was nominated for a Tony Award. The play launched future Law & Order star Michael Moriarty's career.

What people say:

"The most outspoken and honest play about homosexuality that has ever appeared on Broadway." — New York Daily News

"The writing is tough and abrasive. The woman is horrified at her discovery, and she spells it out, painfully and dangerously, with all its implications." — New York Times
