Fragments of AshT1494628933
Army wife and mother Eleanor relives the joys and anguishes of her life which is cleverly interwoven with Rashida's story, an Afghan woman whose narrative is entirely danced. Alternately intimate and cinematic as text blends with dance and physical theatre, this is an ambitious, electrifying and emotional play which focuses on the domestic impact of war after war. A love story, measured in tragedies, which asks a shocking question: what would it take to make an ordinary British mother become a suicide bomber? Blending compelling political narrative and live music, it has been described as a domestic Black Watch. This is theatre to make people laugh a little, cry a lot and remember long.
