Full Length, Serious Play
A contemporary drama that deals with the legacy of the past, a shared history and the road to reconciliation, Home Boy Home is set in a prosperous Derry home. The father, a university professor, has died and his family, two daughters and one son, return home for the funeral. Also present are their ex-headmistress aunt and the former boy from next door, with whom they have lost touch for almost twenty years.
Atmospheric and poetic, Home Boy Home is a brilliant examination of family, mixing comedy and tragedy in equal measure, exploring themes of friendship, loyalty and how the past impacts upon our lives. Flashbacks to boyhood days contrast vividly with the present in this moving and rich work.
