Big Aunty’s dead. Her funeral’s back in Jamaica, where she returned some years ago. The children she brought up together long ago, but have lost touch and gone their separate ways, are now forced to come together again, all these years later.
Big Aunty was the matriarch – a Mum to some, a ‘second’ Mum to others. She took in waifs and strays from reckless parents when they had nowhere else to go, and she gave them a home. But now she’s gone and there’s a Big Aunty-shaped hole in everyone’s world.
Now they’ll need to confront, not just each other, but their difficult pasts, and uncertain futures.
Can they finally lay their differences to rest along with Big Aunty?
This darkly comic family drama is alive with ideas and emotions that connect us all; offering a welcome opportunity to gather and reflect on challenging times, and how we can find a path to resolution.
Devised and directed by the Belgrade’s Creative Director, Corey Campbell (Fighting Irish, SeaView, Freeman) Big Aunty will mark the Belgrade’s first home-produced show of the Spring Season.
