HOME presents 10 shows in 15 days for its annual Orbit Festival September 18 to October 5.

It features "some of the most exciting theatre companies and performers working in the UK today."

They look at what unites us, makes us strong and how we connect with each other.

Amongst this year’s festival highlights are Clean Break’s Sweatbox, performed to audiences of 12 in a prison van (September 19–21); Care from The Pappy Show, which celebrates 70 years of the NHS (September 20–21); HOME Associate Artist La John Joseph’s A Generous Lover, a queer tale about someone navigating the minefield that is mental illness (September 24–25); the return of HOME favourites Sh!t Theatre with Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum With Ex-Pats, an account of their experiences in the European Capital of Culture 2018 in Malta.
