• Memento

    7pm | Wed 31 Jan - Sat 3 Feb | Drama Studio House

    “Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.”
    . . . “The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.”
    . . . . . . “The hardest thing about the road not taken is that you never know where it might have led.”


    MEMENTO explores the parallels between memory, dreams, childhood and improvisation; the way the importance of events in our past can never be truly captured by the mementos they leave behind. Influenced by magical realism, short stories, and moments that don't last, it is a brand new improvised work directed by Jennifer O’Sullivan and part of the Summer of 77.
