Happy HOME Coming
6 October 2019
Reporter: David Upton
Two HOME-produced shows come back to the Manchester venue in which they were made: Class by Scottee (October 23–26), and Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran by Javaad Alipoor (October 23 to November 2).
Scottee grew up around mould, mice and clothes off the market. After a chance meeting with some posh kids, his mum teaching him to talk properly on the phone, and successfully persuading his parents to take him off free school meals, Scottee knew he didn’t want to be common.
The second work confronts modern life in all its unpredictability.
