Frozen Light in association with New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich present:
A tale of unexpected friendship
The world is not how they remember it. Where are they now and where is their home? Scarlet and Olive must learn how to survive and create a future together in an environment that is full of surprises. Will the stars shine on this unexpected friendship? And how will they face the challenges that lie ahead?
HOME immerses audiences with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) in a multi-sensory story of discovery. HOME is the latest bold and exciting production from Frozen Light.
‘Home is powerful piece of theatre about loss,separation, fear, loneliness, reconciliation, hope and rebuilding relationships – human life, in fact. And those things matter to people with PMLD as much as they do to anyone else.’ Sardines Magazine
Supported by Arts Council England, The Garage Norwich and The Point Eastleigh.
