A celebration of theatre returning to its true home - the stage - Homecoming will present a diverse line up of exciting new writing, featuring plays from a wide array of London's very best theatre companies and talent.

Homecoming runs at the White Bear Theatre, Kennington from 10 to 14 November 2020.

The festival culminates with the triumphant return of Bare Essentials, the UK's longest-running and best-reviewed independent new writing night.

Tickets for Bare Essentials are on sale now, with the rest of festival line-up to be announced in the coming weeks.

Artistic Director of Encompass Productions, Jonathan Woodhouse, said ...

"We're honoured to be invited by the White Bear Theatre to curate a week of new writing during their reopening season.

The overwhelmingly positive reaction to our work during the pandemic has been humbling - we're truly excited to work with our fellow London theatre companies and artists to spread the message that theatre is here to stay, with an incredible line up of new and exciting productions.

It is completely fitting that the Homecoming festival will take place at the White Bear Theatre, an essential and pioneering venue for new writing here in the UK".

Note: The theatre operates Covid-19 safety measures - check-out the arrangements here.
