"Coming Home" is a dance drama which follows the story of a young soldier named Brent as he tries to make the transition from a hostile warzone back to his life at home with longtime girlfriend Sam. The story is written in a nonlinear fashion that allows the audience to experience the main character's internal chaos. Flashbacks collide with current events and in-your-face monologues morph into expressive dances that broaden and expand to the greater world of the play.
