'Room 17. Four walls full of lipstick, laughter, hairspray and Horlicks. Nana is nut brown and wrinkled and she has chicken fillets for arms. And she treats me like I’m way more amazing than I actually am.' Set in a seaside hotel of halcyon childhood summers, this autobiographical play by award-winner Jane Upton journeys back to find a beloved Nana before she forgot who she was. Following hit plays Bones, Swimming and All the Little Lights, Finding Nana is about the universal, unconditional love between a granddaughter and her Nana and the ugly truth of losing it all.

Open/closeReviews and Quotations

Deceptive one-woman show, which promises sepia-tinted sentiment and delivers something far harder and more truthful... ingenious design, surprisingly epic sound, rounding out what really is a smart and understated Fringe find.
