There's something enchanting about discovering evidence of previous inhabitants in your house. Whether it be an earring wedged under a skirting board or a confusing message scrawled on the underside of a drawer, it feels like eavesdropping on another time. It may not make sense, but you're definitely getting away with something.
Geoff Sobelle, an absurdist playwright who's been eavesdropping on the nonsensical for quite some time, has seized on this sensation for his theatre show Home. In a single house in a single night, we will see all of the people who will ever live there play out their stories within a hair's breadth of each other. Plus, audience members will be invited to onto the set to inhabit the 'home' as the show progresses. Head along just to see how they divvy up the cleaning roster.
Home is part of Sydney Festival's dramatic and diverse 2019 program. Check out the full lineup here.
