"Room 17. Four walls full of lipstick, laughter, hairspray and Horlicks.
Nana is nut brown and wrinkled with chicken fillets for arms. That's what we say.
And she treats me like I'm way more amazing than I actually am."
"A terrific stage show that engages and elucidates"
"Touching and thoughtful"
Set in a seaside hotel of halcyon childhood summers, this autobiographical play by award-winning writer Jane Upton charts the journey back to find a beloved Nana before she forgot who she was.
Following hit plays All the Little Lights, Swimming and Bones, Finding Nana is about the universal, unconditional love between a granddaughter and her Nana and the desperate need to capture memories before they disappear.
Whether you are a Nana, Grandpa, Granny, Pops, Nanny, Mama or Gran, that grandparent grandchild relationship is special, we invite you to come and share your memorable moments together in an interactive workshop with Participation Director Jayne Williams on tour.
