Finding Nana – Edinburgh reviews and comments

Well, Nana, we went to Edinburgh, and here’s what the people had to say:

Opening up into surprising panoramas of grief and longing… a smart and understated Fringe find.
****
(The Stage)

Upton’s memories of her Nana, before and after she started to experience symptoms of dementia, are told through a series of anecdotes emphasising the sensory layers of human experiences.
*****
(Three Weeks)

It’s no rose-tinted recollection, as we see vivacious Nana decline, her own memory slipping away, fear and confusion taking their place… One to remember
****
(Edinburgh Guide)

A beautifully crafted piece that charts a journey through dementia with great sensitivity.
