Now This Is Not The End, 8pm

by Rose Lewenstein

Six decades ago, Eva lived in Berlin. She remembers her house on Essener Straße. It used to have a blue door.

Now her granddaughter Rosie is making the city her home. But just as she begins to plan for her future, Eva’s oncoming dementia causes Rosie to question her family’s past.

As secrets unravel around her, what will Rosie discover? And what will be lost forever?

Now This Is Not The End is the story of three generations of women, two capital cities and one vital struggle to keep memories alive.

Developed at the Royal Court by one of our most exciting emerging playwrights, Rose Lewenstein’s poignant drama asks how the actions of our ancestors shape our future, how we come to have an identity of our own, and what – if anything – it means to have a homeland.

“They’re just stories. There’ll come a point when nobody can remember”

Keepsakes discussion, 9.30pm

Audiences are invited to bring a family keepsake to the post-show discussion where curator Sue McAlpine will use the keepsakes to draw out a discussion about the history and effects of migration. Participants will be given the chance to question how objects embody memory and share the memories individuals’  objects hold. For inspiration for choosing a keepsake to bring, have a look at Sue’s blog and our Keepsakes gallery.
