A brilliant new one-woman play will make its world premiere in London at the end of April. Dreams Die Hard is based on the diaries of screenwriter and actress Rachel Karfistan’s grandmother Olive Davis.
It tells the story of an unplanned pregnancy, a Turkish Cypriot lover, a red-headed American soldier and a monkey, with the drama flitting between 1940s London and 1980s Liverpool.
The one-hour single set performance raises questions of “vulnerability, national identity, discrimination and national boundaries”, making it an extremely timely production for our “increasingly intolerant times”.
The new play will make its debut at Covent Garden’s Tristan Bates Theatre on Monday, 22 April and run for a week, before travelling up to Coventry for two nights in June, and various dates across Europe.
