Project Description

From estate agents to squatters, from support workers to oligarchs, we are all united in a race to get a place. But who can afford to go the distance? Luckily Sam’s got a chance to make a change, to make things better somehow. Sam’s going to tell us the answer. He just doesn’t know what it is yet.

Based on the accounts of over 200 Londoners, ‘Housed’ was written by David Watson in response to the mounting housing crisis in the capital. The first production by the Old Vic Community Company, ‘Housed’ was made up of thirty performers and 45 back stage participants. Two shows were held at Hotel Elephant and two at The Old Vic in July 2014.
