May is moving out. After forty-five years in the same house, age – and the racket from next door – have finally driven her away from the home she made for herself and her family.
Her son Jack comes round to help, and as they move their boxes out to the van, we see memories playing out – snapshots of life shown against the backdrop of the changing social profile of the area, from working pit village to Northern sink estate.
Our House was first performed by Hull Truck Theatre Company in July 2001 at Spring Street Theatre, Hull. This revised version of the play was first performed by the same company in January 2008, at Theatre Royal, Wakefield.
