Theatre Re presents
After the success of its critically acclaimed international hit The Nature of Forgetting, Theatre Re returns with ‘a rich tapestry of ongoing humanity’ (The Scotsman) about the evolution of
family and life.
Emily is eight months pregnant when she reads her grandmother’s journal. As she delves into the depths of her family history, its pages unveil a legacy of courage, unspoken tragedies and unconditional love.
Established as a professional ensemble in 2011, Theatre Re has garnered a national and international reputation for creating world class, deeply moving, and visually striking poetic theatre.
BIRTH is a visual performance piece which is accessible for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
‘Ravishingly beautiful, spellbinding piece of work’
