Moving. Boxes everywhere. Memories locked beneath the tape. What will happen when the past gets unpacked? A powerful new drama that confronts our ideas of home, loss and the line we tread between holding on and letting go. Is home really a physical, tangible space, or, like everything else, blighted by transience? From galleries, to France, to drunk dancing around an empty kitchen, Be Home Soon follows three young characters grappling with who they are, seeking purpose and a deeper understanding of both themselves and one another.

AMAZING! The best small production I have ever seen!!!
I chose the show because I do cross stitch and when reading the details my interest grew.
For the whole show I could not believe how good the actors were..they were simply perfect in everything and such great chemistry between them all!
It's funny with a powerful powerful that most of audience got really emotional!
I suggested it to all my friends!

We went to see this because of some persuasive flyering - and found ourselves watching a brilliant, thoughtful play. The writing was witty, the staging was clever and the acting was beautiful.
