Currently set to take to stage from the 2nd to the 4th of August, Nanna’s Bolognese is a show that tells the story of Nina and her love of books, learning, stories and food (a list of favourites she shares with her nanna).

Nina gets the call to an opportunity she just can’t refuse, and with her creative genius, she crafts a portal that allows her to travel home at the end of every day and share her goings-on with her  nanna.

One day, Nina gets some bad news from back home and  is left with a tough decision to make.

Nanna’s Bolognese is an original play that alternates between reality and fantasy, childhood and adulthood. The production makes use of clowning, physical theatre, live musical accompaniment and much more.

10 days till our first show at the Camden Fringe so here’s our fourth and last cast member for Nanna’s Bolognese. Rebecca Camilleri will be playing the role of Nina. ??? Rebecca Camilleri graduated with an MA in Acting from ArtsEd in 2018. Since graduating, Rebecca performed in a newly devised piece at the Tristan Bates theatre with her theatre company ‘hitthespottheatre’. This is also her second time performing at the Camden fringe, having played Rachel in Moonchilds’ Coelacanth last year. Most recently she performed in her home country of Malta with the national theatre company in the electronic music theatre production ‘VII’. ??? @beckycam1010 @etcetera_theatre_camden @thecamdenfringe #actor #performer #theatre #newwriting #theatrecompany #theatrefestival #camdenfringe #malta #london #migration #network #connect #theatreprogramming

Francesca Fenech, Anton Saliba and Nikki Demajo Albanese make up the rest of the cast and production credits go to Zoe Farrugia and Chantelle Micallef Grimaud (who also wrote the play script). 

A story centred on the struggles of migration, the piece also explores the doubts immigrants are faced with.

Delving into the emotional truths one must face in situations of guilt, loneliness and shame, the story touches on a silent stigma against those who can’t always return home.

“Sometimes it takes a journey to find our version of success.”
