‘Nobody has ever before asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do. With no relatives, no support, we’ve put it in an impossible situation.’ - Margaret Mead, anthropologist.
Adults boomeranging back to live with Mum and Dad. Garages converted into granny flats. As property prices soar, are there benefits to multigenerational living?

Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage.
