The Archive of Educated Hearts
31st Jul 2019 - 26th Aug 2019
The Green - Pleasance Courtyard
Suitable for ages 12 and above
The show contains distressing themes.
How do you chart the remarkable moments that make up a lifetime? Scrawled diary entries, answerphone messages blinking on an old landline, a shoebox of postcards and cassette tapes winding stories across years and continents.
The Archive is a combination of poetic storytelling, verbatim interviews and a sprawling photo album chronicling the lives of women affected by breast cancer. Step into a library of memories, relics and keepsakes that allow a glimpse into stories of kindness and courage, fragments of absolute joy and incomprehensible heartbreak.
