Stories From Home: A New Play Series was presented on November 14th and 15th, 2021 at the Drayton Arms Theatre.
Stories From Home was the first instalment in Little Lion Theatre Company’s new play series. Over our three performances, we showcased 15 pieces of original writing from a diverse group of Canadian playwrights who had been paired with a UK based director.
From a possible cake-baked intergalactic crime to a relationship-shifting cross country road trip via the secret behind the success of a small-town Chinese-Canadian restaurant, Stories From Home highlighted some of the best emerging talent from the Canadian theatre community right here in London (not Ontario), England.
