New Perspectives present a heartfelt homage to Grans everywhere
Set in a seaside hotel of halcyon childhood summers, this autobiographical play by award-winning writer Jane Upton charts a heartfelt journey back to find a beloved Nana before she forgot who she was.
Finding Nana is about the unconditional love between a granddaughter and her Nana and the desperate need to capture memories before they disappear.
Come to the Centre Bar pre-show, and contribute to our Nana Celebration Wall with photos and thoughts of your Grandma, Nan or Granny. Or email them to us for display. Plus, optional post-show memory sharing event.
Jane Upton is an East Midlands based writer. She said, “This play has a piece of my heart in it. It’s a tale of love and loss and what it means to live, I think, and the crippling fear of forgetting. It’s a tribute to that specific and amazing relationship you can only really share with a beloved grandparent. I’m so happy and grateful to be sharing our story because I'm sure so many people will relate." Jane won the George Devine Award in 2016 for All The Little Lights (Arcola and UK tour). Her other plays include Watching the Living (UK tour), Swimming (Soho Theatre and Edinburgh Festival Fringe) and Bones (Edinburgh Fringe Festival and UK tour).
