HYEM Theatre & Performing Arts

hyem


Everyone says Mick and Sylv’s is dangerous. So why does Dummey think it feels so much like home?

They will be joined by, Aimee Kelly (Wolfblood and Wolfblood 2 BBC; Care, Warp Films), Joe Blakemore (Stan Lee’s Lucky Man; Vera, ITV; The Car, Jamie Childs), Ryan Nolan (Neil, Alphabetti Theatre; Sunshine on Leith, Sage Productions; Road, Project A) and Sarah Balfour (Valhalla, Theatre503; Burning Bridges, Theatre503; Herstory 2, N16).


Everyone says Mick and Sylv’s is dangerous. So why does Dummey think it feels so much like home? Alan Dummet or ‘Dummey’ is a young lad who doesn’t fit in. To make matters worse he lives on the Fountain Park estate, Northumberland, voted the second worst estate to live in Britain 1992. It doesn’t even have a fountain. Or a park. His school, the Police, even his parents don’t want him. Nobody does. That is until he meets Mick and Sylv. This new home has a secret code, a left-wing dog and a 6ft python. Unbeknownst to Dummey, joining the apparently secretive gang at Mick and Sylv's has consequences he could never have imagined.

HYEM (yem, hjem, home) is a story about lost kids and coming of age in an uncertain world - one of post truth, ethical uncertainty, ‘broken’ families and impending war.

This electrifying play premieres at Theatre503 in London before transferring to Northern Stage in Newcastle in October. Producers NorthSEE Theatre create cutting edge productions which provide opportunities for the best in new and established regional talent.

This is the debut play from Philip Correia, best known for his work as an actor with the National Theatre, West End, regionally and on screen. Philip was a member of the Orange Tree Writer’s Collective 2015/16. HYEM (yem, hjem, home) was a runner up in the 2015 Papatango Prize and has since been performed as a rehearsed reading at the NT Studio and at the Live Theatre! Newcastle upon Tyne.

Playwright, Philip Correia comments, We've grown so accustomed to the message of division, we've forgotten how to imagine change. We can alter our narrative through inclusion and community. That's the story of HYEM (yem, hjem, home). This play is about home. It's about overcoming isolation and laughter and people. Arts participation in the North East is around 31%. This is a play to change that. Our cast are mostly from the North East. We're showcasing them in London and then taking them back home.
