The concept of home can mean a lot to different people: it can be a person, or family, it can be a house or location; and sometimes, it can feel like an unreachable desire in the heart of someone who just wants to belong somewhere.
Inspired by interviews with military children from all branches of service, Home of the Brave showcases the joys, anxieties, pride, and struggles of navigating life within a military family. Developed as a co-commission between Honolulu Theatre for Youth and La Jolla Playhouse, this play is composed of scenes and monologues that explore ideas of home, belonging, friendship and change through a collection of stories about five children’s experiences. When moving around a lot throughout childhood and not seeing one or more parents for extended periods of time, what weight do certain words and roles carry?
*This production will be directed and designed by UCF School of Performing Arts graduate students in the Theatre for Young Audiences program and will be touring local schools.
