Home Girl tells the story of Naomi, a teenage girl growing up fast in the care system, a wholly modern story which sheds a much-needed light on what can be an unsettling life - and the consequences that can follow when children are treated like pawns on a family chessboard.When fourteen-year-old white girl Naomi is placed with a Black foster care family, her life takes some dramatic twists and turns.Fast-paced and funny, tender, tragic and full of courage, this exciting stage adaptation will play on the main stage at Derby Theatre this summer.
