Lung Ha's Theatre
Company & Stellar Quines Theatre Company in "13 Sunken Years"
Stellar Quines Rehearsal Rooms are spaces where new scripts and new writers are presented to a live audience for the first time. For this Rehearsal Room, Stellar Quines has partnered with Lung Ha's Theatre Company to present 13 Sunken Years by Finnish writer Paula Salminen, translated by Eva Buchwald.
Three women of different generations are tied to one another not only by blood but also by the magic of the river that runs through their remote Finnish town. Eva, turning eighteen, is eager to set off to university and make her way in the world. On the day of her school graduation, her mother disappears and her grandmother is diagnosed with dementia. As Eva tries to make sense of her life now that pieces of her world are missing, past memories seem to rise out of the mist on the river. Paula Salminen's lyrically atmospheric play examines the connections between family, roots, destiny and the journey that becomes life.
The Play will be presented 'script in hand' by members of both companies, followed by a discussion where you will be invited to have your say on the script.
