    It’s a story that needs to be told, and this is a production that shows Werenowska at her finest.

    A poignant, emotional piece of theatre.
    Colchester Gazette

    Emotionally heavy subject matter often relieved by astutely funny, bittersweet observations on female relationships.

    What holds families together?

    What tears them apart? 

    What’s brewing in the silences?

    1996. London. It’s Ewa’s birthday. Her daughter Anna is coming home from university with a secret to share but Maria has some news of her own. As wartime memories of Siberia resurface, old steps are retraced to uncover the secrets of the past and a Polish heritage that unites and divides them.

    Nicola Werenowska’s funny and fascinating new play hurtles between Warsaw and London over two decades and three generations of a Polish/British family.


    Co utrzymuje więzi rodzinne?

    Co je rozrywa?

    Co czai się w chwilach ciszy?

    1996 rok, Londyn, urodziny Ewy. Jej córka, Anna, wraca z uczelni z sekretem, którym chce się podzielić, lecz Maria ma do przekazania własne wieści. Gdy powracają wojenne wspomnienia o Syberii, prześledzone zostają dawne wydarzenia w celu odkrycia tajemnic przeszlości i polskiego dziedzictwa, które łączy i dzieli te kobiety.

    Spektakl w języku angielskim.
