After the success of its critically acclaimed international hit The Nature of Forgetting, Theatre Re returns with a powerful, poignant and uplifting visual theatre piece exploring the bond between three generations of women, their shared loss, and the strength they discover in each other.

Emily is eight months pregnant when she reads her grandmother’s journal. As she delves into her family history her sense of reality shifts, unveiling a legacy of unspoken tragedies and unconditional love.

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is an internationally acclaimed ensemble creating thought- provoking live performances. The company examines fragile human conditions in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music.
