"Funny, beautifully crafted and genuinely moving’ "
— The Herald
A madcap journey through the epic sweep of twentieth century Russian history exploring the story of Maria Michaliovna, at one moment an old lady sitting in her flat, in the next, a young girl dancing in the park. The Reds and the Whites do battle, the Germans invade, tea is served from a samovar and there is a very big wedding.
Past Half Remembered is the second show in the European Narratives Trilogy, together with My Long Journey Home and The End of Everything Ever.
Produced by Production Support from Sokol Mšeno, Pekařství Paul and Theatre DRAK
