East End play brings human cost of regeneration to the stage

Re home10
  • Comment

The human cost of council estate regeneration is the tale told by Re: Home - a play about the Beaumont Estate Towers which has begun its run in east London

Created by Offstage Theatre, the production lends a voice to former tenants of the towers, which were picked apart brick by brick in 2006.

Re: Home comes to The Yard Theatre, Hackney Wick, a decade after Offstage put the estate’s residents on the stage to talk about the demolition of the towers for its previous production Home.

The sequel uses actors to recount testimonies of current and former residents from 2016, alongside film footage, to document the “fraying relationships” resulting from regeneration.

Re:Home is funded by a Kevin Spacey Foundation Artists of Choice award.

This timely production can be seen at The Yard Theatre, White Post Lane, London. E19 5EN. Tuesday 9 February to Saturday, 5 March, 8pm, www.theyardtheatre.co.uk
