CYA@HOME presents


Created by Kate Colgrave Pope, Rebekah Harrison


Due to the coronavirus outbreak, HOME is temporarily closed and this event will no longer be taking place.

We do not know yet how long this closure will last, but this will be at least until the end of March 2020. We will attempt to reschedule as many events as possible and if this is not possible, we will be contacting ticketholders to refund cancelled shows.

More information can be found here.

We are every moment we have ever known… Who are we, really?

PACK IT UP is a semi biographical play that explores the moments in our lives that have helped to make and shape who we are today and what we want for our future.

This devised play interweaves narratives, music, dance, sound and movement to share honest, funny and moving accounts of the lives and experiences of this dynamic, vibrant and unique group of young creatives.

We all have luggage – Use it – Conquer it.  Let it set you free
