Hold On Let Go

** THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED - ticket holders will be contacted by our Box Office team. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused. **

Alex can’t recall his mother’s voice or most of the 1980s. But he can instantly bring to mind his mother’s cooking and his family’s stories of the Spanish Civil War.

Luca worries that she can’t remember the important stuff – things that might make the world a better place. Her journey sucks her into a black hole crammed full of everything she’s ever forgotten.

A poignant, personal meditation on the gaps in our memories, Hold On Let Go asks: what do we want to pass on to future generations? It’s a show that bakes bread, dances on the kitchen table and wonders what is left when words are gone.

Presented by Unfolding Theatre in association with Little Mighty
