Memory - Clwyd Theatr Cymru

Eva, an ageing Jewish Holocaust survivor, who still lives in East Berlin, recounts the story of her life just after the Berlin Wall has fallen in 1990.

In flashbacks we follow her through the rise of the Nazis to the horror of the concentration camps.

Past and present intertwine in an intricate play within a play structure.

A parallel story strand shows the building of another wall – the Israeli “security wall” in modern Palestine.

A young Israeli soldier comes into contact with the Palestinian man who he has been sent to evict.

The play is beautifully acted and directed and its emotional intensity brought some of the audience to tears.
