Home is not the Place

  • Theatre Deli Sheffield 202 Eyre Street Sheffield, England, S1 4QZ United Kingdom (map)

Where do I belong? What defines me? Where is home?

Poetic, poignant solo show by award-winning writer Annie George, which tells the remarkable story of the short life and lost work of her grandfather, Keralan poet PM John, shortly before India’s independence; and contrasts his struggles with her own, as an immigrant in the UK.

Drawn from family memories, with music, projections, and testimonies of both Annie and John, Home is Not the Place considers how experiences shape us, what home means and how we can live forever.

An intimate story of personal and political independence, painted on an epic canvas.

‘...a fascinating examination of the meaning and legacy of the British Empire.’ THE STAGE
