  • You can choose to donate the price of your tickets to ATYP as a tax-deductible donation. Your support at this unprecedented and extremely challenging time for the arts will be more valuable than we can express.

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.

Themes of: domestic and family violence, physical abuse and neglect, drug use, mental illness, references to suicide and references to sexual abuse.

“The script is excellent, the youth performers are agile and expert, and the reach is intergenerational and much more than just education and acknowledgement.”

Judith Greenaway – Reviews by Judith

“Treston’s writing is incisive, and wonderfully dynamic. His dialogue sparkles and pops, to draw us in, and to keep our emotions invested.”

Suzy Wrong – Suzy Goes See

“Four young actors – Laneikka Denne, Jasper Lee-Lindsay, Sofia Nolan and Thomas Weatherall – inhabit multiple characters with depth and sensitivity.”

Kate Prendergast – Limelight Magazine

“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 – Playwave


“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.”
