The Archive Of Educated Hearts (Lion House Theatre)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2018

Casey Jay Andrews is an incredible storyteller, a fact made clear as she takes us through the memories and tales of families affected by breast cancer. Told through family photos, voice recordings, and Andrews’ own stories, ‘The Archive’ explores what it means to live with the prognosis, for us and for our loved ones. It’s a unique experience that leaves one feeling both heartbroken and incredibly privileged to have taken part in the intimate installation. ‘The Archive’ is a show exploring memory and nostalgia, for what or who we have lost, and for what we have not yet lost; a series of snapshots built on the moments that make up a lifetime.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 27 Aug.
