FOLLOW ME HOME

A co-production with Arts On Tour

Follow Me Home is an insightful theatre production by award-winning playwright Lewis Treston.

Presented as a series of vignettes, the play reveals the real stories of a group of extraordinarily strong, resilient and courageous young people.

Inspired by the lived experiences 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.

“Follow Me Home succeeds in its intention to demystify the complexities of youth homelessness, and urges the audience to question their own role in a culture that often looks beyond those who need someone to listen.”

Nicole Pingon

LIVESTREAM FEEDBACK FROM TEACHERS:

“As a Brisbane viewer who had seen a live production at ATYP I often speak of your company to my class so the opportunity to watch a live stream is SO appreciated. I thought it was a fantastic experience. My students don’t get the chance to see much live theatre so was great for them to get an idea of what it is like.”

Drama Teacher

“Thank you ATYP for providing our school with the opportunity to see quality live theatre performed by young actors. It was an invaluable experience for my students! The production was exemplary in its treatment of youth homelessness, opening this topic up for numerous discussions with my students. My students were so happy to participate in the live Q&A and the young actors ability to articulate their acting processes as well as listen to how the actors approached such a taboo topic. We are so far from Sydney so thank you for making this experience so accessible for our students.”
