A new work by Brokentalkers Theatre Company and the residents of Ballyfermot/Cherry Orchard
Working alongside Ballyfermot based drama group Basement Productions, Brokentalkers have devised a piece that travels to peoples’ homes. A play in your living room. Or your kitchen. We will perform to an audience of two or twenty depending on the space available.
The Home Project is a timely look at the idea of social housing in a dystopian future, where families are not given the choice of where they live. Where housing comes at a high cost to individual freedom and with strings attached.
The Home Project is the story of a family who has been forced to leave their home and relocate to a new area.
This year Ballyfermot is marking its 70th birthday. The first social housing was built in the area in 1948.
There are 104 roads/streets across Ballyfermot/Cherry Orchard and this ambitious project aims to have a performance in a house on each road over the next few years.
The Home Project is funded by The Arts Council and Dublin City Council
