Through to February 2019, Home presents a new season of over 20 shows including Emma Rice’s West End Smash Hit Wise Children, 1927’s The Animals and Children Took to the Streets, and Head longs Shakespeare Richard III.

2019 is set to mark new beginnings of a new phase for HOME, where there will be a renewed commitment to not just producing new work, but also growing our collaborations with existing artists. This season HOME supports World Premieres by Scottee and Javaad Alipoor and Liz Richardson. Javaad’s production Rich Kids of Tehran will be his first new commission.

As well as World Premiere productions developed with HOME, there is a carefully curated programme of new work featuring celebrated emerging artists and award-winning shows from international festivals. It includes Bertrand Lesca & Nasi Voutsas’s new production One, Iman Qureshi’s Papatango Prize winning play The Funeral Director, and a return of Scottee’s hit Fat Blokes.

2019 will offer a vibrant programme of building-wide festivals and seasons which include major productions in the theatres. In April HOME’s annual ¡Viva! Festival of Spanish and Latin American art returns for a 25th year. HOME will also mark Refugee Week, with a mixed programme including Iranian artist Nassim Soleimanpour’s production Nassim.

Alongside all this, welcoming famous and the funny to its theatre spaces. Highlights include comedian Mark Thomas with his theatrical examination of our National Health Service in Check Up: Our NHS @ 70; RuPaul’s Drag Race favourite Jinkx Monsoon.
