Nottingham Playhouse and Next Door Dance present

“A house is where someone else lives, a home is where I live.”

What does Home mean to you? A place you look forward to being in? A place you can’t wait to leave?

Thoughts and feelings from real Nottingham people about home have inspired this beautiful and funny piece of theatre, directed by Fiona Buffini (Kings, Mass Bolero, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Time and the Conways) in collaboration with Next Door Dance (The Beautiful Game).

Who does the washing up? Are you a clothes neatly folded or a thrown on the floor person? How does the home help you to unwind from a long day at work? Do you live in a showroom or in chaos?

All these questions and more are explored in an illuminating and enjoyable journey through the lives of Nottingham people. Over 100 participants from all ages and backgrounds have contributed with their stories about what “home” means to them. Come along to experience these stories brought to life alongside a unique soundtrack – you might even hear some familiar voices.

Interview with Director Fiona Buffini

“Home is a subject that everybody can talk about in some way… You can gain a tremendous insight into their life and personality just by asking simple questions about their home… Unfortunately it’s not a place of safety for everyone, for some it’s quite a chaotic and dangerous space. We’re going to explore all different kinds of relationships with the home through theatre and dance.”
