Background


By writer-performer Kate Maravan (Improbable, The Bush, Hampstead).


'Inspired by my mother, The Old House explores an alive connection to the present moment, and how distinctions between well/ill, sane/insane, young/old are less defined'.


Audience comments: 'So much beauty and sadness and complexity and silliness and everything human' 'Spectacular, detailed, alive, and compelling'.


Synopsis


Memory, loss, mother-daughter relationships and the hokey-cokey.


Revisiting The Old House, Mother and Daughter hang on to fragments of what they know.


Losses surface as seawater pushes and pulls over the shingle.
