BY JANE UPTON
DIRECTED BY KATIE POSNER
Written by the joint winner of the George Devine Most Promising Playwright Award 2016, Finding Nana is set in a seaside hotel of 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 desperate need to capture memories before they disappear.
