The MakeShift Ensemble present ‘Sofa’, a play exploring memory, place and the worlds we create around us.
The sofa is where we make new worlds as children and seek solace as adults, a place to laugh, cry, play and discover. Join Rachel and Mark at their old family home exploring memories of a loved one living with dementia, and the changing perspectives they bring to those memories.
The MakeShift Ensemble with their distinct and compelling style, discover the effects of memory and ‘unmemory’ on family relationships. Inspired by authentic experiences, Sofa tells the stories, with humour and pathos, that sometimes go untold.
“Their creative storytelling is a joy to behold. Come and enjoy the story and admire their skill” – Fourthwall Magazine 2015
