This solo performance (which wishes it was a duet) is the ongoing product of Viki’s grief. Using a family photo album she recreates moments from her grans life, fitting herself into the images. It is about things that were never said, one sided conversations and failing substitutes. This surprising and amusing performance features dancing grapefruits, The Archers, fake tan, giant cigarettes, balloons and Phil Collins. This is a heartfelt piece for anyone who’s ever lost someone they love.

‘Every comment, every loving sentence is adoring and painful, joyous and grievous […]her devastation becomes deafening and coats us all in a stifling silence[…] a true tribute to an unsung hero.’ EXEUNT

The Gran Show has been performed at Bristol Old Vic, Camden People’s Theatre, The Wardrobe Theatre and VAULT Festival.
