Vicky meets her estranged adult niece for the first time and must come to terms with grudges, memories, and regrets buried deep in her family’s past. Three generations of Filipina women hop between an ocean and time, memory and dreams. Set in Canada and the Philippines, Homecoming is a visceral show with moments of magic that reach into the afterlife, exploring cultural identity, familial duty, and delicious Filipino food. Homecoming asks, what is home for those of us who are displaced, who are stuck, or who have never known a home? And more importantly, can we ever make our way back? In this world premiere, Sediego tells a complex story of home that is raw, intimate, and full of humour.
