The Unusual Theatre Company are delighted to bring you DDOS's Original Production of A Different Way Home ahead of its performance at The Edinburgh Fringe this year! A Different Way Home by Jimmie Chinn started life as a radio play. It was subsequently televised by Granada Television in front of a small studio audience. Such was the reaction that it was extended into a two-act stage play, and premiered at the Oldham Repertory Theatre where it received best actor (Roy Baraclough) and best new play for the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards. In this moving, funny and astutely observed play, two monologues from two members of a family in a small, closely-knit, North of England town tell a powerful story from two wildly different perspectives. Leslie, who has lived with his mother all of his life, tells of the events leading up to her death, revealing the extent of his loss and the bitterness towards his sister, Maureen. Feeling betrayed and rejected by her family, Maureen tells a different story of grief and isolation. The two powerful voices remind us of the need for families to communicate, and for love to transcend prejudice.
