Bristol-based theatre company Amelia’s Garden produce a one-off staged reading of a powerful new drama by Bristol-based Liz Mytton about sexuality and human rights in Jamaica.

Back Home is the story of an unlikely friendship between two lonely individuals, an elderly Jamaican woman and a young, gay asylum seeker. Both live with fear and isolation – one due to illness, the other due to a homophobic culture that caused him to flee his home. Together, they unpack their burdens and explore the true meaning of home.

In partnership with Centre for Black Humanities
