Outside the Box – a new theatre production in partnership with Candlelight productions


Candlelight Productions, in partnership with Servants Community Housing,

invites you to experience life…


Outside the Box

How do you know when you’re home?

Inspired by the real life stories of residents in our rooming house in Hawthorn, this group devised performance explores issues of homelessness and home.

A small team of experienced actors met, dined with and got to know people who are technically ‘homeless’. They interweave drama, movement, music, puppetry and multimedia to tell true stories of trauma, loss and stigma, but also of community, respect, dignity and hope.

Outside the Box is a celebration of what it is to be human. It is entertaining, funny, moving, thought provoking and empowering… You’ll come away with more questions than answers, but also delighting in the art of making a house a home.

This is an invitation… to anyone who has tried to make their own home, or who has ever found themselves homeless, either physically or in spirit. It is essential viewing for anyone who houses homeless people, shapes policy on housing, or wants to raise the next generation of leaders.

Above all, this is an entertaining show, full of uplifting stories.

Come and join us at the table.
