Leave Taking

Leave TakingT01325635923
A single mother travelled to England determined to make a good life for her family. Now Enid and her two daughters search for a way to feel rooted in a land where they're invisible. With one daughter prepping for university happy to lead "a quiet life" and the other doing anything but, what's a mother to do except call upon the local 'obeah' woman for some traditional Caribbean soul healing. Family secrets are soon revealed and tragedy rekindles Enid's longing for home. Leave Taking is a beautifully observed, moving account of a second generation immigrant family navigating the familial conflicts between generations and cultures. The play was first produced at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1987.
