Some Call It Home

The Arts Institute at the University of Plymouth presents Some Call It Home, a new multi-media music drama showing at Theatre Royal Plymouth, focused on the critical issue of our fraught relationship with our home, our planet.

After their treacherous Atlantic Crossing, how did the Pilgrims' leader react to reaching land? 200 years later, whose destiny was "manifest"? And who are today’s Pilgrims?

With live music and international star soloists, this hard-hitting work of art explores how we have carved destinies by pitching dominion of our land against stewardship, from 1620 to the present.

Following each performance there will be a free after-show discussion panel, lasting between 45 and 60 minutes.


Two internationally recognised composers have been commissioned to write the musical score, Jonathan Dawe (NYC), and Jane O’Leary - a direct descendant of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren.

Feel the passion with live music from Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and star soloists, experience the past as never before, and emerge with an idea of what good we can all do for our future.

Created, directed and produced by Robert Taub, Music Director, Arts Institute University of Plymouth.
