Who Do We Think We Are?, Sonja Linden and the company, Southwark Playhouse, 29th Oct - 15th Nov

What makes you the person you are today? Your genes? Your experiences? The experiences of your parents and grandparents?

Set between 1914 and 2014, follow an international group of artists as they weave stories from their lives and the lives of their families into one another to create a rich historical tapestry. The cast, made up entirely of actors over 60, features Togo Igawa, the first Japanese member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and features Leo's mum Adah Kay as Executive Director.
