Learning and Forgetting is a family tale about remembering. Young Eva is excited to learn new words and ideas. Her beloved Grandpa forgets – his memories and words aren’t close at hand anymore. But that doesn’t keep Eva and Grandpa from playing in the present and creating new stories together. Eva and her brother lift Grandpa’s spirits on moving day as he transitions into a new home. Follow along as they find joy in the moment and learn understanding for a lifetime. This joyful theatrical experience explores intergenerational love with warmth, laughter and puppetry.

Written by award-winning playwright Amaranta Leyva, Learning and Forgetting is based on her own family experiences.
