Rebecca Targett Productions in association with Raising Silver Theatre have announced the full cast for the world première of Rose Lewenstein’s new play Now This Is Not The End at the Arcola Theatre.
Katie Lewis directs Jasmine Blackborow (Rosie), Daniel Donskoy (Sebastian), Brigit Forsyth (Eva), Wendy Nottingham (Susan), Bernard Lloyd (Arnold) and Andrew Whipp (Paul). The production opens on 5th June, with previews from 3rd June, and runs until 27 June 2015. “They’re just stories. There’ll come a point when nobody can remember” Six decades ago, Eva lived in Berlin. She remembers her house on Essener Straße. It used to have a blue door.
Now her granddaughter Rosie is making the city her home. But just as she begins to plan for her future, Eva’s oncoming dementia causes Rosie to question her family’s past. As secrets unravel around her, what will Rosie discover? And what will be lost forever?
Now This Is Not The End is the story of three generations of women, two capital cities and one vital struggle to keep memories alive. Developed at the Royal Court by one of our most exciting emerging playwrights, Rose Lewenstein’s poignant drama asks how the actions of our ancestors shape our future, how we come to have an identity of our own, and what – if anything – it means to have a homeland.
