An honest and emotionally raw performance, don’t miss Moot Entertainment’s Come Home by Jeff Charlton and Chris Scott. Charged with drug trafficking and possession with intent to sell in Australia, Come Home depicts Scott’s personal story and the events surrounding his arrest and eventual trial.

“It was a dark time in our lives, particularly Chris’ life. Neither of us thought there was going to be a positive outcome—and it hurt. I thought I was going to lose my friend,” says director Jeff Charlton in a statement.

A theatrical performance about loneliness, crime, and the humanity between friends, the production blends narrative, movement, and live electronic music.

“I was lost and scared. With the time I had left I reached out to a handful of people and what they did changed my life and ultimately made me into the person I am today,” adds Scott in a statement.

Created for the 2017 Calgary One Act Festival, Come Home won numerous awards and will be competing in the 2017 Provincial One Act Festival the last week of May.

Come Home runs May 16 to 20, 2017 at Pumphouse Theatres (2140 Pumphouse Ave. SW). Tickets are pay-what-you-can ($10 minimum) and can be purchased at
