After discovering his grandparents’ old love letters, Ben makes a last attempt to secure the future of his relationship with Alma. Separated by borders, Brexit, and their own uncertainty, they come together for what might be the last time, to discover the love letters of Ben’s grandparents, from World War II. Utilising the real letters of Mary & Mietek, this two-hander romantic journey, guides us between 1945 and the present day, drawing unmistakable parallels for both Ben and Alma, and the world at large. With beautiful live scoring and subtle but powerful movement, this piece is filled with hopeful romance, exploring how separation by distance and in culture can either divide, or bring us together. Warning: References to consequences of war. Occasionally strong language.
