A new play exploring identity, culture and migration. Seen through the relationship between a blind, Polish Grandfather and his English Granddaughter.
Grandad found a home in Yorkshire in 1945 after spending six years fighting and surviving World War 2. He likes a whiskey and hates the ventilation in his front room. Every morning he opens his eyes and a sorrowful “bloody hell” escapes his lips as he realised he’s still blind.
Chesca drinks way too much beer and has moved house a mere 28 times. As a modern-day performance artist, Chesca feels repressed by the world around her and pissed off at all the men in it. Chesca found a home at her Grandad’s house after spending what felt like most of her life at war.
Jadek delves into Grandad’s stories of World War 2 and explores the history of Polish communities in the UK, looking at how immigration has evolved and questioning how the world looks when you can’t physically see it.
