Need Teatro presents their original production TOY’S HOME -- a place where past, present, and future collide. Katia, a business woman at the beginning of her career, returns to her childhood home to try to save it from foreclosure and reconcile with her overbearing mother and estranged brother. At home, Katia experiences the echoes and artifacts of the incidents and emotions that drove her away. Amidst a circus of dancing lights and shadows, the home stands as a desolate and decaying monument of promises unfulfilled.
TOY'S HOME is written and directed by Jacopo Squizzato and performed by Katia Mirabella, Paola Compostella, and Jacopo Squizzato. Performances are in Italian.
