Set far into the future, in a post-oil world, Home of the Wriggler follows four investigators enthusiastically piecing together the interwoven stories of families that once lived in the shadow of a huge car factory set for closure.

Ambitious and witty, alive with ideas, built from true stories and industrial history, Home of the Wriggler is a playful kaleidoscopic soap opera. Its industrious performers, turning dynamos to light the stage with car headlights, bring to life dozens of humdrum fragments of everyday moments. Together they create a poetic and heartwarming story of a community getting on with living their lives while a huge corporate drama unfolds around them.

From Stan's Cafe, who brought The Capital to Cornerstone last year and have been touring to international acclaim since 1991.


“A vibrant collage of stories of those whose lives have been buffeted by the winds of change and shaped by where they work” - The Guardian

“Throws its own honest light on a tight-knit community and the individuals for whom [Rover] wasn’t just a job, it was identity and tradition, kinship and a future they thought was secure” - The Herald

“Gentle, poetic and powerful … a clever, entertaining and ultimately moving piece of theatre.” - Birmingham Post
