Enter the world of a fictional residential care home in this large-scale experimental show by Christopher Green. The Home is a 48-hour immersive experience which gives participants an opportunity to discover the problems and pleasures of being cared for in a communal setting, and explores the care home as a place of reinvention and possibility.
Logistically, The Home is remarkable: the level of control even when we thought we had agency; the intricacy of planning and stage management; the intense periods of improvisation from all cast and crew. It rings us out emotionally, too. The Home is neither a blanket celebration nor critique of the care sector, but a demonstration of how complicated and difficult it is. By making us genuinely vulnerable, The Home forces us to directly address the care industry and our own possible futures within it.
British Theatre Guide: “Audacious and confrontational…Powerfully felt and a compelling call to arms…Impeccably researched and minutely detailed in its delivery, it was impossible to resist The Home”
The Home will be on tour in the UK in 2021 and the Japanese version launching in summer 2021.
