50 years after Ken Loach’s landmark BBC drama, Cathy Come Home, 23 people with their own experiences of homelessness get ready for the performance of their lives.
This documentary follows their journey to the sell out performance at the Barbican. Watched in 38 countries and a standing ovation. Wilderness Productions followed the rehearsals and all the drama on and off stage. Includes interviews with Ken Loach, who directed the original Cathy Come Home.
At the end of 2015 it was announced that homelessness in London has soared 79% since 2010. Against a backdrop of this homeless crisis, Wilderness present a documentary that witnesses the transformation of some of these vulnerable individuals who gain confidence, purpose and drive through performing on a stage.
