Revisiting The Old House, Mother and Daughter hang onto fragments of what they know. Beach walks, fish and chips, carnival processions, echoes of bygone summers. Memories surface, slip away. A last chance to meet each other anew. Grief, laughter, liberation… Inspired by her mother, Kate Maravan (Improbable, The Bush, Hampstead, ‘Maravan is outstanding’ Lyn Gardner) explores alive connections to the present moment, how distinctions between well/ill, young/old are less defined. Relating to someone with dementia can be a creative, meaningful exchange. ‘So much beauty..sadness…complexity..silliness..everything human’. ‘The writing in this play is exquisite… funny and devasting, The Old House is a beautiful tale… Maravan’s [an] incredible talent’ NorthWestEnd.co.uk ‘Compelling, thought-provoking, bittersweet… heart-wrenching… a rollercoaster of emotions throughout’ LondonTheatre1.com Kate Maravan and Kath Burlinson have worked collaboratively for many years. The Old House was developed in association with the Authentic Artist Collective which was founded by Kath Burlinson in 2007.
