In the 1970s, just a few metres from the Sherman’s doors, a revolution started. It was a revolution that rocked the world.


It began when Alan, a young man born with Down’s syndrome, crashed into the life of Cardiff University student Jim. Alan had lived as a resident in Ely Hospital since childhood; all he wanted was to live in a house and be in a band. Jim wanted to make a difference in the world, but didn’t know how. Together with their friends, they embarked on an experiment that transformed how things were done, how people were treated and who got to tell you how to live. This was the beginning of the end of institutionalized care and the birth of Supported Living.


This October, Tim Green, Sherman Theatre and Hijinx come together to tell this remarkable true Cardiff story. Performed by a cast of neurodivergent and neurotypical actor-musicians, Housemates packs a punch and touches the heart. Come on down to the Sherman and feel the noize with this banging night out filled with classic 70s hits.
