Glasshouse Port Macquarie presents
FOLLOW ME HOME
written by Lewis Treston
Created by Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) in association with the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP)
Follow Me Home is an insightful new theatre production by award-winning playwright Lewis Treston. Presented as a series of vignettes, the play is inspired by real stories of homelessness shared by extraordinarily strong, resilient and courageous young people from across Port Macquarie and other parts of the Mid North Coast.
Telling the truth, being honest and sharing your story takes guts. Real guts. How do you tell your friend she can’t sleep over anymore? Can you help a parent when she’s lost all hope? How can you strive for independence when the system is working against you? And what if just being honest means you’re out on the street?
Inspired by real life stories shared by homeless young people across NSW, this thought provoking work from Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) is a must see for audiences aged 14 and over. Four talented young actors take on multiple roles in a fast paced show that will leave audiences with a shift in perspective, a little more compassion and a deeper understanding of the world around them.
...quality live theatre performed by young actors.
