British Theatre Guide
How far are any of us from losing our homes?
Do you know someone who struggles with money? Someone who went through a tough break up? Maybe they drink too much, use risky substances, have lost someone close, lied, fallen ill. But they could never lose their home…right?
According to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation we're all just two pay cheques away from losing our roof.
How Did I Get To This Point? is a new play based exclusively on research with homeless people. People you may recognise, living through an emotional rollercoaster of hardship that no one should ever have to experience. When affordable housing is scarcer than ever, How Did I Get To This Point? asks just how close we all are to a life without a home.
