As another birthday draws closer Granddaughter feels like her life is slipping away. Through stories told to her by her Bajan and Irish Grandmothers she learns to take control of her own narrative so she can proudly fill their shoes.
Shoes to Fill is a celebration of mixed-race identity and the coming together of two cultures. With elements of music, spoken word and multi-rolling, this 1-woman new play takes us on an unexpected lyrical journey that questions who we are and where we fit in.
