The war is over. Right?
Using comedy and beigels, this funny and brave new solo show explores how we can honour the histories we inherit, whilst breaking free from them.‘ Bringing to life the true stories of two Holocaust survivors connected to Tamara, the show tears open an intergenerational wound, probing why we remember the Holocaust – and what it might look like to forget …
Supported by Arts Council England, Canada Council for the Arts, British Columbia Arts Council, Battersea Arts Centre, JW3, Camden People’s Theatre and Chutzpah! Festival for the Performing Arts.

‘I laughed. I cried. Suddenly, my trauma was sitting in front of me in the form of a beigel and it was the perfect picture of thousands of years of oppression, and the possibility of toasting to liberation.’
‘Inventive and engaging. Great sense of humour.’
‘A thoughtful, heartfelt and funny exploration of intergenerational trauma … A multifaceted dialogue between past and present.’
