Finding Home by Mercury Theatre Wales will visit the Torch Theatre on Tuesday 2 May at 7.30pm and Wednesday 3 May at 7.30pm. An affecting and powerful piece of theatre, it will explore stories of homelessness.
Devised by the company and written by Bethan Morgan, it tells the story of a varied group of characters who find themselves thrown together into a makeshift family as they face the challenges and hardships of life without a home.
Directed by Lynn Hunter, the stories told are based on true experiences and life journeys of those who have found themselves without a home for differing reasons, many of whom took part in the play's development.
“Inclusion, integration and empowerment all lead to gaining a sense of belonging, self-worth and achievement for people both with and without a permanent home. The piece will we hope develop a better understanding and awareness of the many people in the community around us and help tackle the general stereotypes that the public may hold about homeless people,” explained Bethan Morgan, Artistic Director, Mercury Theatre Wales.
And Sitting on the Fourth Wall adds: "Finding Home explores an enormous topic through intimate, personal stories, drawing its audience into the realities of homelessness through deft theatrical storytelling”.
The Cardiff-based theatre company aims to produce high quality, innovative and thought-provoking work. They are committed to developing Welsh talent and bringing to the Welsh stage new pieces of theatre, created to be relevant to contemporary audiences and the communities with whom they engage.
There will be a pre - show performance from community participants at 7pm.
