Description:
“How does the experience of change help us develop and grow?” That essential question is among the issues explored in this winner of multiple theatre awards in Los Angeles. The critically acclaimed play by Mike Kenny introduces a grandfather who struggles to explain the absence of “Nanna” to his visiting granddaughter. With humor and help from a clown, they discover the meaning of family — celebrating life and learning to accept the reality of death. Beautifully produced video and live music transport the audience from the quaint English seaside to the spectacular big top of the circus.
