HOME at Christmas

Kristy Stott, Theatre Editor

We’re racing towards Christmas and we’re pleased that HOME is celebrating the most wonderful time of the year with a super packed season of festive fancies – there’s certainly enough to give Father Christmas’ reindeers a run for their money.

Expect an evening of top-notch musical family comedy with Släpstick, a winter warmer of nostalgia, virtuosic musicianship and, yes you guessed it, slapstick fun. Those with younger children should also certainly seek out the hugely popular visual tale of White from the award-winning children’s theatre company, Catherine Wheels.

Film fans will be able to look forward to a season of Slapstick on the big screen. HOME’s Slapstick Film Season will fully complement the theatrical Släpstick performance, expect silent and early sound films from the likes of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers. Timeless, accessible and exceptionally funny.

As if that wasn’t enough, HOME also brings an unashamedly nostalgia-fuelled feast of ‘80’s films. You’ll find a range of blockbusters, comedies, cult classics featuring some of the most-loved characters of the decade. Kicking off At HOME in the ’80’s is a special screening of Robert Zemeckis’ innovative Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

While you’re immersing yourself in all of the festive culture at First Street – why not sample HOME’s First Floor Restaurant? Honest, bold and fresh – catering for all dietary choices – however, we recommend that even hardened carnivores and pescatarians should dive into the veggie and vegan dishes.
