    HOME For a lost soldier

    A special play supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund marking the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War

    Capturing a small community in the aftermath of the war and how they coped when the soldiers returned home and how they worked towards rebuilding their lives.

    “Home” is a love story and a thriller rolled into one with a wonderful cast which also explores issues of mental health, unemployment, disabilities and women’s rights.

    Performed in an intimate space and in Alfie James Productions simplistic style using Alfie James beautiful writing style; this performance is one not to be missed.

    Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the First World War Engagement Centres and with special thanks to The Eastbourne House of Arts and to The Albany Theatre.
