We remember. We forget. Then there are things we pass on. This defines a family’s history.
Six generations, twenty-three characters, one very special piece of furniture. Tanya Ronder’s thrilling play is an epic tale of belonging, identity and possessions passed down by their ancestors.
The sturdy, handcrafted dining table holds the stories of six generations; each scratch, crack and stain telling a story about their lives, and the lives of those before them. But which ones haunt us and which are forgotten? Stories of love, death, of faith and freewill.
This show is part of a three show season alongside Dance Nation and House of Bernarda Alba, all performed by Bristol School of Acting Extended Diploma Professional Acting Students.
