Created by the well-known intergenerational company, Roots&Branches, this show turns the economic crisis into an unprecedented opportunity to bring the generations together. The wisdom, stories and strength of the elders, the ‘roots,’ have never been so relevant, as the young ‘branches’ try to cope with the sudden changes in their economic prospects. How do we live with fear? What gives us security? Can I actually give up bottled water? With its singular brand of theatrical humor, poignancy, drama and style Roots&Branches uniquely provides audiences with hope, insight and joy in these hardening times. The one-hour play fosters spirited dialogue with the audience in an open post-show discussion and open new avenues of intergenerational understanding.
