A Freestyle Comedy

By Shirili Deshe and the actors. Co-playwright Roni Sinai

Director: Shirili Deshe

Four actors and an actress entered the rehearsal room and breathed new theatrical life into their grandmothers through a unique creative process. The result is a group of grandmothers sharing an assisted living facility with a registered nurse who accompanies them in song and dance.
Thus was born a play that is a tribute to seniors and to long lives of passions, fears and stories.

The play offers a glimpse into the world of our grandfathers and grandmothers, who have recently experienced social distancing and isolation, and sheds new light – painful, heartwarming, funny, and above all full of longing – on our relationships with them.
