“It’s all happening. All at once. Life. We are little and old and middle aged all at the same time. She was. Nana.”
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.
Following feedback and further research, I’m hoping to develop the play in autumn 2014.
