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. Using real testimonials alongside existing and original music, Nadia Fall’s new play asks what it really means to call somewhere home.
