Details

What holds families together?

What tears them apart?

What’s brewing in the silences?

1996. London. It’s Ewa’s birthday. Her daughter Anna is coming home from university with a secret to share but Maria has some news of her own. As wartime memories of Siberia resurface, old steps are retraced to uncover the secrets of the past and a Polish heritage that unites and divides them.

Nicola Werenowska’s funny and fascinating new play hurtles between Warsaw and London over two decades and three generations of a Polish/British family.

“Catch it if you can: this is a delicate and bold piece of work” (Damian Thompson, The Telegraph, 2013 on Nicola Werenoswka’s TU I TERAZ)

“Thoughtfully crafted, deeply absorbing and sensitively directed by Wiltshire Creative associate director Jo Newman” (The Stage on Hansel at Salisbury Playhouse, 2018)

A Mercury Theatre Colchester, Wiltshire Creative and Unity Theatre Liverpool Production.
