What holds families together?
What tears them apart?
What’s hovering in the silences?

1996. London. It’s Ewa’s birthday, her daughter Anna is coming home from University with a secret to share but Grandmother Maria has some news of her own.

As wartime memories of Siberia resurface, old steps are retraced to uncover the secrets of the past and a Polish heritage that unites and divides them.

Nicola Werenowska’s funny and fascinating new play hurtles between Warsaw and London over two decades and three generations of a Polish/British family.
