The Homefront

John Kristian's musical exploration of life on the streets of London, written after he became homeless for a short period in 2013.

His time on the streets inspired him to share the stories of the many people he met.

The play follows the fortunes of three homeless men living in London: sharing their stories of day to day life, seeing the inside of a jail cell for the wrong reasons, facing fears, experiencing tragedy and coming to terms with their fate.

Each of these homeless men are at different stages of their journey, but their stories bring them together, and, in turn, also tear them apart.

Kristian's time on the street allowed him to see parts of London hidden in plain sight, meet people invisible to the public eye and also record real conversations that are featured within the text of the performance.
