Homechild, A Drama by Joan MacLeod, performing at The Curtain Club

This is an evocative and tender tale of family bonds, lineage and the endurance of love. It centres on Alistair MacEachern, a crotchety, funny and fearless farmer. For 70 years he has silently longed for the sister he left behind in Scotland.

This story unearths the secret and the shame of the 100,000 Home Children sent to Canada from Britain over 70 years.

Directed by Joan Burrows
Produced by Rob Mather

Starring: Brian Moore, Victoria Curran, Kay Valentine, Peter Shipston, Rob Goodale, Zara Stuart-Jones, Carol Moore, and Brigit Morrison
