Often unsung stories, grandmothers give us a perspective on the timeline of life that is rarely honoured and this show is full of poems, humour and stories all about my Nan’s story, with sharing of others.

My Nan, Eve Hind, was the original Educating Rita who pretended to be an ordinary working class housewife whilst she dreamed of greater things, became a new age pioneer on strange spiritual quests and as a lifelong learner, became a graduate in her

The show is more than a telling, it’s a shared experience and has the opportunity for the audience to join in with their own tales of grandmothers old and new.  

You can hear two of the poems ‘By  Heart’ and ‘On the Buzzes’ here: soundcloud

Quotes from audience:

‘A wonderful series of poetry, narrative and wit that will acquaint you with Eve and make you think of your own grandmother’

‘powerful and evocative performance piece which brought Rachel’s grandmother to life and reminded me of the importance of honouring our heritage and the female principle’
