NYC’s The Family Tree

  • Show Information

The Family Tree, a dramatisation of Mal Peet’s elegant and challenging novel, is the result of an intensive nine-day residency by 26 senior members of NYC. This brand new production combines the narrative of Mal Peet’s original text with stylised explorations of the themes of the novel.

NYC explore issues such as mental health, childhood experiences of the adult world, and how nostalgia can get in the way of the truth.
