In her one-woman show, UK theatre artist Deborah Pearson explores her family history through the prism of a dubiously-subtitled Hungarian comedy film from 1956. In doing so, she opens up a conversation around history, memory, unreliable and collective narratives, censorship, and immigration. Pearson is a co-founder of pioneering experimental theatre collective Forest Fringe, who have presented a program of risk-taking work as part of Edinburgh Fringe since 2007.
