Today we can finally reveal the cast for Home Truths, our season of nine plays exploring the history of housing at The Bunker this April.
The full cast are: Richard Galloway; Jake Goode; David Hartley; Mariam Haque; Caroline Loncq; Endy McKay; Andre Skeete; Mitesh Soni; Cathy Owen and Faye Wilson.
The ensemble of 10 will appear across all nine plays, travelling through the past 200 years to explore everything from the Victorian housing crisis through to squatting in the 1970s, the ravages of Rachmanism in the 1950s and white flight in the 21st century.
While the cast features many new faces to Cardboard Citizens, Jake Goode and Andre Skeete have worked with us on numerous projects and previous shows, and Cathy Owen returns following her role in our most recent tour, the hugely successful Cathy.
The cast join the previously announced playwrights (Sonali Bhattacharyya, Lin Coghlan, EV Crowe, Anders Lustgarten, Stef Smith, Nessah Muthy, Chris O’Connell, David Watson and Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods) and directors Adrian Jackson and Caitlin McLeod to complete the Home Truths company.
Also announced today, Cardboard Citizens has been awarded a grant of £45,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to create the Home Truths Festival of Heritage Events. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the Festival will offer people a programme of free linked events designed to engage both the general public and people affected by homelessness.

Home Truths: An Incomplete History of Housing Told in Nine Plays runs at The Bunker from 17 April to 13 May. Tickets are on sale from £10 now here.
