About Alex & Eliza
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
SCOTTISH PREMIERE | AN ARC STOCKTON PRODUCTION
By Umar Butt
As a girl she lived through the death and destruction of the 1947 partition between India and Pakistan, but now Zubair’s grandmother is like everyone else’s grandmother.
Old and wrinkly, slow in speech and speed. The separation, isolation and loss of that time are a distant memory. Now she makes her own olive oil and mango pickle and butter. Sits in the afternoon sun brushing her grandchildren’s hair. Knits sweaters for the winter and makes cakes.
She had lived in the same house on the same street for 40 years of her life. Nothing out of the ordinary. Until she gets on a plane to visit Zubair seven seas afar.
Contains moderate violence, strong language and adult themes. Strictly no latecomers
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Alex & Eliza are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
