A group of performers from acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens is squatting in The Bunker to present a playful exploration of housing from the slums of Victorian London to the madness of London today.

An immersive multi-story speculation on need, greed and good intentions, Home Truths is revealed through the world premieres of nine short plays by some of the UK’s most exciting playwrights: Sonali Bhattacharyya, Lin Coghlan, EV Crowe, Anders Lustgarten, Nessah Muthy, Chris O’Connell, Stef Smith, David Watson and Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods.

Home Truths will look back at the history of UK housing, from the Victorian housing crisis through to squatting in the 1970s, the ravages of Rachmanism in the 1950s and white flight in the 21st century. The nine plays will be split into three Cycles. Each Cycle can be seen as a stand-alone production, or alternatively audiences can take part in a theatrical sit in and watch all nine plays over the course of a day in one of two special Tri-Cycle performances.

Shows:

  • Slummers by Sonali Bhattacharyya
  • The Ruff Tuff Cream Puff Estate Agency by Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods
  • Back to Back to Back by Stef Smith
  • The Table by Lin Coghlan
  • Put The Schwarzes Into De-Stat by Nessah Muthy
