Forever Home

An uplifting and inspiring musical play about identity, family and finding your way home.

Growing up is never simple but for Caitlin, there are extra complications: Caitlin was in care, then adopted, now her birth family want her in their lives. Things are spiralling out of control…..

Caitlin and her Mum have been called into the Head Teacher’s office. But she’s done nothing wrong. Ms McKenzie’s breath does stink, she was doing her a favour, everyone vapes and they can’t prove she was anywhere near the fire alarm!

Co-presented with Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Ayr Gaiety.
