Rendezvous in Bratislava
Miriam and her granddad are making a cabaret together. They’re the perfect double act: he’s got the stories, she loves telling them, and they both have a flair for the theatrical. The only problem is they’ve never met. (He’s been dead for 37 years.)A cabaret-style joyous celebration of family, friendship and music in this play about a family in Eastern Europe. Brought from Battersea Arts Centre London with Looping the Loop

The result is a civilisation unique to each group that takes part.Brought from Battersea Arts Centre London with Looping the Loop
