Home Housed


Housed is a new play responding to the London housing crisis written by David Watson and directed by Alexander Ferris for the Old Vic Theatre, London. In preparation for this production, the 100-member intergenerational team of actors and creatives underwent a training programme, co-facilitated by Claire French. Key actors also engaged a special research programme where they could meet and work with the real-life representatives of their characters, designed and led by French.
