Set in modern day Dublin, “Home” follows one family’s journey as they struggle to cope with the pressures 70 year old Moya’s increasing Alzheimer’s puts on her daughter Lucy’s family life.

The listener will witness the evolution of Lucy’s relationship with her husband and their children, and follow Moya’s journey, as her illness takes centre stage in all their lives. The relationship between Moya and her estranged husband is also central to the plot. Caught between her dependent mother, her children and her distant father, Lucy struggles to cope.

Will reconciliation and peace await Moya, as she becomes entirely dependent on the care of those closest to her, moving ever closer to Home?
