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

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?

The story of three generations of women, two capital cities and one vital struggle to keep memories alive, 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.

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“Gentle, thoughtful play about family, legacy and memory... a trio of strong performances. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Realistic, well-performed... Witty, energetic slanging matches... A subtle, sweet study of legacy and love. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Lewenstein’s writing is full of the snap and crackle of family life... This is a small, quiet play, but it hums with life. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Stirring if uneven... neatly gets to the heart of the survivor/descendant paradox [but] doesn't always ring true. ”

Theo Bosanquet (Time Out, What's On Stage)
