A spiky play about the clash between suburban and itinerant ways of life in present-day Liverpool.
Bobby, Paul and Ange. Three people, four walls: the basic recipe for family life. Down the road in Curzon Park there are no walls, just wheels, and a fierce sense of belonging that has nothing to do with place.
Two ways of life: yards apart and yet worlds apart. But when Bobby starts skipping school to hang out with Danny, their friendship forces both families to look beyond the walls that divide them.
Chloë Moss’s play The Way Home was first performed at the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool, in October 2006.

‘her dialogue crackles with authenticity’
— Time Out
‘a genius for catching the currents – and undercurrents – of everyday conversation’
— The Times
‘an observant, sensitive and sad play, never preaching, always generous’
— Sunday Times
