The Notebook (UK)

A WORLD WAR II SURVIVAL STORY


TWINS STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL
THE NOTEBOOK tells the story of twin brothers who are evacuated during World War II to go stay on their impoverished grandmother's farm. They are placed here because their mother can no longer provide food for them. There is a war going on. Their father is at the front lines, no one knows if he is dead or alive. Their story unfolds somewhere in a Central Europe that is still divided by the territorial divisions of the First World War. The twins at first seem like strange and dysfunctional social outsiders who understand the world by their own harsh moral code as the cruelty of war crumbles everything around them, the brothers are revealed slowly as struggeling moralists who do what they can to survive.

TOUCHING INTIMATE THEATRE
The award-winning British company Forced Entertainment touchingly recounts the twins' story in the performance THE NOTEBOOK. It's a very simple set up with minimal stage design that tells the story of lost childhood, during World War II in touching and compelling intimate theater.
