Toured the South West and West Yorkshire in the Autumn and Spring of 2016 supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Theatre West commissioned and produced Homeward Bound in 2014 for their autumn ‘One Day’ season, it was first performed at the Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol.
Homeward Bound looks at the dreams we hold and the cards we get dealt whilst attempting to round the bases of a baseball diamond and reach home. A solo performance inspired by my son’s love of baseball and the Los Angeles Dodgers and the team he plays with in the South West Baseball League; interwoven with stories of my own upbringing in a Northern household and the lives of my mother and grandmother. All children have childhood dreams, in Homeward Bound I look at the dreams of my Northern grandmother (see below) and mother and the restrictions they faced and conquered.
“Homeward Bound was, without question, one of the best shows I have ever watched.” ★★★★★Rosemary Wagg, Exeunt
“Fantastically executed and deeply reflective it’s a wonderful play that causes the audience to think back to their own past, family and dreams.” Christy Ku, The Reviews Hub
