Home: The Caretaker - a digital short project from Bristol Old Vic

Home is a digital short project from Bristol Old Vic, inspired by The Caretaker. Working with our friends, we’ve come together to explore the idea of ‘home’; what that means, where it’s found and how it makes us feel.

We meet so many brilliant, creative, passionate people – not all of them on our stage, but all of them artists in their own right. Through movement, through words, through song, each short is made by a vital voice we know and love. This platform allows you to meet them too.

We want to see the world through a different lens, so let’s look a little closer and start to think differently. Sometimes, the world is right on your doorstep.
