The Homefront was written after John Kristian became homeless for a short period earlier in 2013. His time on the streets inspired him to share the stories of the many people he met. We follow the fortunes of three homeless men living in London: sharing their stories of day to day life, seeing the inside of a jail cell for the wrong reasons, facing fears, experiencing tragedy and coming to terms with their fate. Each of these homeless men are at different stages of their journey, but their stories bring them together, and in turn, also tears them apart. Kristian's time on the street allowed him to see parts of. London hidden from plain sight, meet people invisible to the public eye and also record real conversations that are featured within the text of the performance. From doctors to students, and those struggling with their vices, the stories of the people of the street inspired Kristian to create a challenging piece of theatre that would show the London public what life is like on The Homefront.
