Home Girl (play)

Alex Wheatle


Home Girl is the story of Naomi, a teenage girl growing up fast in the foster care system. It is a wholly modern story which sheds a much-needed light on what can be an unsettling life--and the consequences that follow when children are treated like pawns on a family chessboard. Home Girl is fast-paced and funny, tender, tragic, and full of courage--just like Naomi. This brand new stage adaptation of Alex Wheatle’s award-winning novel has been created as a unique collaboration between professional writers Alex Wheatle MBE, Nathan Powell and Sarah Kolawole, Derby Theatre, Derby’s Cultural Education Partnership, professional care-experienced young people and other young theatre makers (our Future Creatives).
