In 2013, homelessness amongst young people in the UK is at a record high, so when the big society doesn't work ― where do you go? An inner city high-rise hostel, Target East, offers a roof.

Bullet doesn’t want to call a hostel home. Eritrean Girl was smuggled here in a lorry. Singing Boy dreams of seeing his name in lights and Garden Boy just wants to feel safe.

Home is a new play by Nadia Fall. Based on 48 hours' worth of interviews with hostel residents and staff, real testimonials mix with beat boxing and live music to tell the stories of dispossessed young Londoners and ask what it really means to call somewhere home. Watch:

Home is at The Shed from 7 August to 7 September. Tickets £20 or £12.
