“Home”—The Shed, National Theatre

Created by Nadia Fall

Home is the current production running at The Shed, the temporary venue commissioned by The National Theatre to showcase new writing that is ‘adventurous, ambitious, and unexpected’.

Taking place at an inner city hostel built as a temporary sanctuary for youths without a home, the audience is directly confronted with a variety of experiences from those that are often unheard – from an Eritrean immigrant painfully recounting her journey of being smuggled into the country, to a White British teen sounding off about his frustrations with the ever-growing number of immigrants in the UK. Utilizing contemporary music and real-life experiences of young people interviewed by director Nadia Fall, Home provides a unique and honest insight into the many issues faced by British youth today, all the while questioning the components of what truly makes a place ‘home’.

Home is currently playing at The Shed until the 7th September 2013. For tickets and more information, click here.
