  • Overview
    How do you become homeless? Is it because you refuse to engage with society? Or is it because society can’t find a way to engage with you? Is it through laziness and apathy? Or circumstance and tragedy? Can it only happen to other people? Or could it happen to you?

    Combining caustic wit and searing drama, Shelter, the new play from Rondo Artistic Director Ian McGlynn, looks at how homelessness happens – and how hard it is to escape.

    Provoction seeks to examine contemporary social and political issues with a razor sharp sense of humour and a barely controlled simmering rage at the mess we’re in today - all wrapped up in a good night out.
