Too young to be drafted, too old to pretend everything's fine. The year is 1918: World War I and the Flu Pandemic rage. Set against the backdrop of a tumultuous and riveting moment in history, Homefront tells the story of young people courageously struggling to come of age in a world rocked by conflict. As they experience the first twinges of romance and dream of the future, their lives are transformed in astonishing ways, forever redefining their understanding of home.
The musical's rock backbone and crackling dialogue launch the piece into contemporary relevance and emotional immediacy.
Commissioned and originally presented in 2011 by American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, Homefront was revived by popular demand in 2017.
