Letters to My Grandma
Letters to My Grandma by Anusree Roy
Oct 17 to 21, 2023
In the haunting Letters to My Grandma by Anusree Roy, Malobee unearths letters detailing her grandmother’s fight to survive the 1947 partition of India, which resonates with Malobee’s own struggles to create a new life in present-day Canada. A grand multi-generational tale of love, regret, hatred, and forgiveness, this one person show weaves the remarkable stories of these two women together, inextricably linking their histories and delving into how the hatred bred between Hindus and Muslims in the Old World consumes families in Canada today.
