Follow Me Home

Written by Lewis Treston
Created by Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) in association with the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP)

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

Stories with heart, honesty and humanity.

Follow Me Home is an insightful new theatre production by award-winning playwright Lewis Treston. Presented as a series of vignettes, the play reveals the real stories of a group of extraordinarily strong, resilient and courageous young people from across Australia.

Telling the truth, being honest and sharing your story takes guts. Real guts. How do you tell your friend she can’t sleep over anymore? Can you help a parent when she’s lost all hope? How can you strive for independence when the system is working against you? And what if just being honest means you’re out on the street?

Inspired by the real life stories shared by homeless young people across NSW, this thought-provoking work from Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) is a must see for audiences aged 14 and over. Four talented young actors take on multiple roles in a fast paced show that will leave audiences with a shift in perspective, a little more compassion and a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Follow Me Home depicts young people living with the realities of homelessness.
These stories explore themes of: Domestic and family violence, Physical abuse and neglect, Drug use, Mental Illness, References to suicide, References to sexual abuse.
