About the Show:

Ingrid Garner wrote and performs this adaptation of her grandmother’s award-winning autobiography, growing up as an American caught in WWII Berlin. In 1939, when she is nine, Eleanor’s family moves from America to Germany, but war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and they cannot return to the United States. Eleanor struggles to maintain her American identity as she feels herself pulled into the turbulent life roiling around her. She fervently hopes for an Allied victory, yet for years she must try to survive the Allied bombs shattering her neighbourhood.

This stirring one woman show is a must see and gives a very human face to the tragedy of war.

“★★★★★ Garner completely embodies the vulnerability of the child, the terror of Berlin during the air raids, and also the joy of survival!” The Advertiser
