It’s home isn’t it? It’s where it started.
Ten years ago residents of the Beaumont Estate Towers in Leyton looked on as their homes were dismantled brick by brick.
Re:Home sequels Cressida Brown’s 2006 production, Home, made and performed before people were moved out of the towers.
In 2016, Cressida revisits the Beaumont Estate to make a show about what our homes mean to us today.
Using testimonies collected from former and current residents of the estate, Re:Home documents fraying relationships in the changing landscape of East London.
Winner of the Kevin Spacey Foundation Artists of Choice – UK Theatre Award, Re:Home is a show brimming with urgency and compassion, giving a voice to a community that no longer exists.
Acclaim for Home:
★★★★★ “Offstage pulled off a coup de theatre, creating a piece at once human, gripping, touching…the writing, direction and acting were impeccably sensitive and nuanced” – WhatOnStage
★★★★ “An infectiously defiant spirit…linguistically versatile and politically charged” – Time Out

Developed at the NT Studio and RADA this is a play which will take place on board a travelling boat with the audience down the Thames from Battersea Power Station to the embedded Cutty Sark in Greenwich.
This play will be inspired by interviews conducted with waterman, river dwellers, developers and it will explore the changing face of the Thames and London.
This January 6 weeks development took place on Livett’s Launches’ pleasure boat The Elizabethan moored on the Thames by Tower Bridge with RADA students.
