Inspired by real-life stories, Home Death is a courageous, compassionate play about how our society deals with the reality of dying, raising urgent questions about palliative care in the UK.

70% of us want to die at home, but in reality only a quarter of us do. A lingering death in a nursing home is one of the biggest fears of the elderly, and yet research from the think-tank Demos predicts that by 2013, 90% of us will die in the soulless setting of a hospital ward.

Home Death’s universal relevance will make it a moving and rewarding play for amateur theatre companies to perform, or reading groups to discuss.
