Nana goes to Edinburgh
In August 2017, New Perspectives took Finding Nana to the Edinburgh Fringe. We had a fantastic creative team including director Katie Posner, designer Sara Perks, lighting designer Alexandra Stafford and sound designer Arun Ghosh.
As well as some great reviews, we received an overwhelming audience reaction. So many people relating to the story and lots of emotional responses.
The play is set to tour in Feb/March 2018.
See reviews and audience comments.
Every summer, Jane and her Nana shared the same room in the same hotel in the same seaside resort for the same two weeks. That was until Nana started to lose her memory.
Flitting between the past and present, Nottingham and the Isle of Wight, and childhood and old age, Finding Nana is a play about love and loss, memory, disconnection and finding your way home.
Originally written for Making Tracks, a project started in the East Midlands by Theatre Writing Partnership, Finding Nana was shared as a work-in-progress at Lincoln Drill Hall and Colchester Mercury in May 2013. The play was directed by Esther Richardson with sound by Adam McCready.
