A couple. A suitcase. A game lost. A memory played. When Aine loses her memory, Mihail constructs a form of therapy to help bring her back. But therapy with the one you love can be a very funny game. What happens when the rules change? ‘Ashes Afar’ spikes social politics with bitter humor. Watch the lives of this young immigrant couple unravel in this fractured story about memory, love and the loss of both.

The play is produced by VANNER Collective and TETA Association. The project is co-funded with the support of AFCN Romania, Romanian Cultural Institute and The Oxford School of Drama.
