    Home Sweet Home

    What happens when you have to leave your own home sweet home and find yourself in a different kind of home altogether? A home where anything can happen, where the day to day reality of caring and being cared for brings you up against bursts of beauty, high drama, Bollywood dancing and even a little magic. 

    You are invited on an exciting journey to explore a side of ‘the home’ which will change the way you think about getting old forever.


    From the producers of the critically acclaimed sold-out production of The Mill – City of Dreams, comes this heart-warming, new theatre show featuring live singing and dancing.  Join residents Rosa and Moses on a journey celebrating love, endurance and hope, which will change the way you think about getting old forever.  


    Home Sweet Home  is based on the true stories and experiences of over 200 olderpeople from Bradford, Deptford and Stockton. 


    Written by Emma Adams. Directed by Tom Wright.
