Description

Home (NHB Modern Plays) A powerful, inventive play that mixes real testimonials alongside existing and original music to explore one of the most important social concerns of today: homelessness amongst young people.

Bullet doesn't want to call a hostel home. Eritrean Girl was smuggled here in a lorry. Singing Boy dreams of seeing his name in lights and Garden Boy just wants to feel safe.

In 2013, homelessness amongst young people in the UK is at a record high, so when the big society doesn't work ? where do you go? An inner city high rise hostel, Target East, offers a roof.

Home brings to life the unheard voices of the young residents and staff who live and work behind the anonymous concrete walls. A bold verbatim play that asks what it really means to call somewhere home, it is offers ideal material for youth theatres and young performers.
