A new play by Dermot Bolger, in association with The Civic, as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.

After decades abroad, Shane returns to a multicultural Ireland he barely recognises. But he discovers surprising links: an unknown daughter, a black teenage grandson trying to define his identity, and gangland figures threatening the boy’s future.
Can he protect this grandson who is unaware of his existence and can they both find ways to feel they truly belong here?

Home, Boys, Home completes a unique trilogy that started with In High Germany in the 1990 Dublin Theatre Festival: three standalone plays, written fifteen years apart, recounting the lives of three friends, as emigrants abroad and now as returnees to Ireland.
