Ashes Afar

by Andreea Borțun


Ashes Afar spikes social politics with bitter humor. Watch the lives of this young immigrant couple unravel in this fractured story about memory, love and the loss of both.   An Irish/Romanian collaboration forged in the UK.   A couple. A suitcase. A game lost. A memory played. When Aine loses her memory, Mihail constructs a form of therapy to help bring her back. But therapy with the one you love can be a very fun game. What happens when the rules change?   Ashes Afar premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015, with 5* reviews. It toured to Undercloud 2015, Godot Cafe and Bucharest Fringe 2015 where it was awarded Best Production, Best Play, and Best Female Performer. Our next performance is in Piatra Neamt, in November 2016. It is expected to return to the UK next year for a longer run.
