What if you were trapped in a new country when war broke out? Ingrid Garner wrote and performs the internationally acclaimed, theatrical adaption of her grandmother Eleanor Ramrath Garner’s award-winning memoir, detailing her youth as an American caught in WWII Berlin.

During the great depression, when she is nine, Eleanor’s family moves from her beloved America to Germany, where a new job awaits her father. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and return to the U.S becomes impossible. Eleanor struggles to maintain stability, hope and identity in a world of terror and contrasts.

Shows at 6:30pm (doors 6pm) and 9pm (doors 8.30pm).
