So what is Home all about? Well, Katherine escaped from her small Texas home and her hypochondriac mother 9 years ago. When she finally steps back into her childhood home, Katherine is immediately overwhelmed by the familiar. Every room seems to have a story. Every corner of the house holds another recollection. Katherine’s memories become so vivid, in fact, they appear to come alive before her eyes. Both humorous and heartbreaking, Home explores parenting and childhood with unflinching honesty, questioning what it means to grow older, and whether we truly have the capacity to grow up.
Home stars Leenya Rideout (War Horse, Cyrano de Bergerac, Company, Cabaret), Nancy Slusser (Louie), Alison Cusano (A Night with Janice Joplin), and Sydney Shuck (Annie National Tour). The design team is: Shane Cinal (Set), Chelsie McPhilimy (Lights), Patrick MacDonald (Sound), Rebekah Priebe (Costumes). ATF’s Producing Artistic Director, Chad Rabinovitz, directs.
This is one of the most heartfelt and moving musicals I’ve ever read. Scott Alan’s finest work is represented in this show and Christy Hall’s book brings the music to life in an intimate and genuine way. Put simply, this is a show that needs to be seen.” – Chad Rabinovitz
