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. Grief, laughter, liberation from the known, the wonder of the ordinary ebb and flow. here’s a slender chain that links a woman in her forties with her elderly mother and her dead, unborn, child. Sometimes, it’s as fragile as silk. Sometimes it’s an anchor chain. It’s the atomic bond of love and in the end, what families are all about.
By writer-performer Kate Maravan (Improbable, The Bush, Hampstead) ‘Maravan is outstanding’ Lyn Gardner
'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'
