Alex & Eliza

As a girl she lived through the death and destruction of the 1947 partition between India and Pakistan, but now Zubair’s grandmother is like everyone else’s grandmother.

The story of a family’s journey, Alex and Eliza will be performed in The Round at The Dukes Theatre in Lancaster on September 27.

Written and directed by Umar Butt and presented by ARC Stockton, the play is an imaginative and epic story of a family looking to its past to understand its present.

Using music, humour and storytelling, Alex and Eliza shares deeply personal stories with universal themes around love, selflessness and acceptance.
