Finding Nana

“Room 17. Four walls full of lipstick, laughter, hairspray and Horlicks. Nana is nut brown and wrinkled and she has chicken fillets for arms. That’s what we say. And she treats me like I’m way more amazing than I actually am”

Set in a seaside hotel of halcyon childhood summers, this autobiographical play by award-winning writer Jane Upton charts the journey back to find a beloved Nana before she forgot who she was.

Following hit plays Bones, Swimming, and All the Little Lights, Finding Nana is about the universal, unconditional love between a granddaughter and her Nana as she pieces together shared memories before they disappear.
