Savannah Bay at La Mama
About Savannah Bay
An ageing actress, a devoted young woman – what desperate memories bind them together?
“You don’t know who you are, who you were, you know you have played, you don’t know what you played, what you are playing, you know you have to play, you don’t know what, you play.
Savannah Bay is you.”
A young woman attends to Madeleine, an ageing actress – she may be her carer, she may be her grand-daughter. She desperately seeks to entice from her the fragile memories which bind them together – memories that have merged with a life immersed in the theatre.
Life and art blur in this delicate production featuring Brenda Palmer as ‘Madeleine’.
