Leaving home is an experience that most of us can relate to. It is a rite of passage that marks the beginning of our journey towards independence and self-discovery. In the play 'Leaving Home' by David French, this familiar theme is explored in a deeply insightful and compelling manner. Set in Toronto, Canada, during the 1970s, French presents us with a captivating story that delves into the struggles, desires, and dreams of a family on the brink of change.

The play revolves around the Mercer family, particularly the relationship between the parents, Jacob and Mary, and their two adult children, Ben and Kathleen. French masterfully portrays the tensions and conflicts within the family unit, excellently capturing the complexities of human relationships. Through a blend of sharp dialogue and poignant scenes, the audience is invited into the very heart of the Mercers' home, experiencing their struggles and witnessing their growth.

As the title suggests, 'Leaving Home' explores themes of departure and liberation. It focuses on the desire for change and the longing for personal fulfillment that often accompanies the journey away from home. French skillfully articulates the tension between the need for independence and the ties that bind us to our families and our roots. The play encourages us to reflect on the sacrifices we make and the risks we take in pursuit of our own dreams.
