When grandparents have little or no contact with their grandchildren because of family conflict or separation, emotions run high. The script for this performance is based on interviews with 33 grandmothers and 17 grandfathers, from research undertaken by Professor Margaret Sims. Faithful to the words of the grandparents themselves, the performance highlights the pain, grief and longing experienced by those cut off from loved ones. Sorrow is leavened by acceptance and by finding creative ways to track the lives of distant grandchildren.
