Three actresses embody different facets of a young woman who returns home to bury her father. While there, she cleans out her closet, and as she rediscovers objects, memories come tumbling out. Touching on stories as diverse as a feisty Polish-Jewish émigré taking America by storm, an Argentine who stands against his country's repression, and a woman who witnesses the fall of the Berlin Wall, THE ART OF REMEMBERING reminds us of the beauty of life and the importance of our past.
"Four Stars, Pick of the Day…Marcel Proust bit into a biscuit and his memory took off for several volumes…THE ART OF REMEMBERING has a cast of three and some mimed relics and remembered addresses, but they speak volumes in under an hour…inspiringly creative. It is certainly guaranteed to heal any misgivings you may have about the endurance of the human spirit." —The Scotsman. "Three women, each with a suitcase, unpack the memorabilia of their life experience, letting loose memories of people and places and events in evocative fragments reaching back over the century. In Adina L. Ruskin's cinematic-style collage play, cleverly composed…the memories are momentarily held before us, then dissolve as others take their place. The careful blend of poignancy and lively humour add to its special appeal." —The Stage (U.K.).
