Our new Sep 2019 – Feb 2020 Theatre Season

Welcome to our September 2019 – February 2020 season. This is a very exciting time on our stages, as we create, collaborate and play host to distinctive work and stories that speak up for our city.

At the heart of the programme, we’re proud to be producing some brand new shows alongside some of the most extraordinary artists and companies the UK has to offer. We open the season by collaborating with National Theatre Scotland on a stunning new adaptation of HOME Patron Jackie Kay’s Red Dust Road. There are new HOME-commissioned works by some of my favourite artists including Chanje Kunda, Scottee and Javaad Alipoor. And we’re delighted to be hosting an extended Christmas run of co-production with HOME-favourites 1927: Roots.

Alongside these brand-new HOME commissions, we have returning favourites, UK premieres and exciting debuts, including work from the Young Vic, Bryony Kimmings, English Touring Theatre, Little Angel and the safari rangers from Chester Zoo! Following a sold-out run, Emma Rice’s Wise Children return with new show Malory Towers, and we host the regional premiere of Debris Stevenson’s semi-autobiographical Poet in Da Corner.

We continue our commitment to making HOME a building for all with two new productions that integrate captioning alongside bilingual English and BSL performers. Both Ad Infinitum and Told by an Idiot make their debut with HOME-commissioned Extraordinary Wall of Silence and The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel respectively.

  • Booking open to HOME Friends from Tue 28 May, 12:00noon
  • Booking open to HOME Members from Wed 29 May, 12:00noon
  • All tickets on general sale Thu 30 May, 12:00noon
