Follow Me Home

Date: 12 May 2021

Telling the truth, being honest and telling your story takes guts.

How do you tell your friend she can’t sleep over anymore?

How do you share something deeply personal with a sibling but keep things the same? How do three friends set up house together when they’re living day to day?

And what if being honest means you’re out on the street?

Written by Lewis Treston, Follow Me Home is a series of vignettes revealing the real stories of a group of strong, resilient and courageous young people across Australia.

Treston attended a series of workshops with young people who had experienced youth homelessness, facilitated by the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP), as part of his research process.

“I got a real sense of how ‘ordinary’ teenage things become immeasurably difficult when you don’t have a traditional support network. Most importantly, I was able to just hang out with these awesome teenagers, who were so generous and open, had a wicked sense of humour, and expressed a hopeful vision for their future, which I found so inspiring.”

This production sees three of the original cast members from Follow Me Home‘s 2019 premiere season – Laneikka Denne, Jasper Lee Lindsay and Sophia Nolan – reprising their roles.

“In 2019 two of the cast were still in school!” says director Fraser Corfield. “This year one of them is stepping off the set of a major film, another is fresh from an extended season at STC and two are now leaders in the Sydney independent theatre scene. T hey were good the first time around. I can’t wait to see what we can do this time.”
