So It Goes at Shoreditch Town Hall in east London
On The Run Theatre will present a near-wordless depiction of grief titled So It Goes at Shoreditch Town Hall in east London, as part of a UK tour, running at the London venue from 8 to 18 April 2015, with an official opening on 19 April 2015.
The production, which is devised and performed by Hannah Moss and David Ralfe, was made seven years after co creator Hannah Moss lost her own father to cancer. Near-wordless, the show uses captions on white boards to explore her own true story, deftly capturing her battle to discuss her Father’s death while navigating a poignant journey of memory, laughter and sorrow.
Co-creator of the production Hannah Moss said of the show: "I was with David at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012, six years after my Dad died, when I had the idea for So It Goes. I was inspired by the shows that didn’t rely on spoken language, and I started to try and talk about my dad and my experience through writing on a whiteboard. Talking about my dad had been hard until then, but I felt freed by the whiteboard and it became the central part of the show, symbolising a universal theme: how difficult it is to talk about grief."
The production features design by Emma Tompkins and lighting design by Celia Dugua.
