Presented by Tale Be Told Theatre

On Hold is a take on the housing crisis from the viewpoint of families living in temporary accommodation.

This intimate show – brought to CPT as part of The One Festival of Homeless Arts, and performed in the round – combines personal accounts from the cast with verbatim testimony from families living in temporary accommodation. These are broken up by moments of clowning & surrealism, echoing the ridiculous hoops families must go through as they have their lives put ‘on hold.

This darkly comic play lifts the lid on what it means not to have a home to call your own. It reveals the human truth behind the statistics of the housing crisis. 

Created using Arts Council England funding
