About the Show

Content Warning: The following content contains discussions or references to suicide, self-harm, or related topics.

“Little mouse, we hold you a funeral. I’m sorry you were dead in our junk draws. I’m sorry I threw you across the room. I hope you flew.”

Look. I don’t want to kill myself, it’s just… I do think about cutting my hands off.
Beth, Claire’s best friend, is stuck at home. Jared, Claire’s boyfriend, is here too.
But Claire isn’t at home. Claire is in hospital recovering from a suicide attempt. And no one knows when she’ll be coming home.
As blood leaks from the kitchen cabinets, conversations turn into dance numbers and jokes turn into nightmares, CLAIRE COME HOME is a dark comedy about the absurdity and grief of waiting for a loved one to get better. This trope-flipping play asks you to sit on the couch and mind the seven foot laundry pile while the supporting characters take the spotlight.
