FOLLOW ME HOME
Created by Australian Theatre for Young People in association with the Advocate for Children and Young People

“I’ve never told my friends about my story… with homeless, you can’t talk about it.”

Australian Theatre for Young People (Patrice Balbina’s Chance Encounter With the End of the World, The Climbing Tree) return to Riverside in 2019 to bring an incredibly powerful and eye-opening piece of theatre about homelessness amongst youth to the stage.

Developed in consultation with over eighty young people who have experienced homelessness in NSW, Follow Me Home celebrates their extraordinary resilience and hope.

Created by ATYP’s 2016 resident playwright and directed by Fraser Corfield, the beautiful, personal stories told in this play will touch your heart and transform you.

Suitable for: Ages 15+

FYI This production contains coarse language
