Another Home Invasion by Joan MacLeod
Joan MacLeod takes on a very topical subject in Another Home Invasion. Home invasions are in the news frequently and these violations of the spaces we regard as sacrosanct are deeply unsettling. Of course this play involves the hapless, substance-abusing, middle-aged petty criminal we expect to find there, but is he the real threat to the home?s occupants? He even shows up for a return visit. Who, then, are the real perpetrators of the heartless betrayal of the elderly couple who lives here. Who is it that is robbing them of their possessions, their security, their relationship, their family ? their home? The answers to this questions are as surprising as they are unsettling.
