Isabel and Ed are a bright young couple living in the shadows of two very different Jewish histories. It’s 1973 in Canada, and they really like each other – and each other’s parents. They want to embark on their own journey, but first they must do battle at home. As their families meet, eat, misinterpret and overreact, will the older generation be a help -- or a hindrance?

Performed at Bush Theatre, London, 2013

Mentored by Sabrina Mahfouz (theatre), Avalon Rathgeb (tap dance)

Fleeing Britain in scandal, Lord Byron is pent up in Geneva with writer’s block and a male lover. Mary and Percy Shelley have come to visit, but why? And what will they do amid the nonstop rain?

Join this motley group as they clash, picnic and witness the birth of … Frankenstein! Mad, bad and dangerous to see.
