The Letter J was formed in 2012 by Judith Williams having been inspired by the illustrations of The Grey Earl [AKA Jon Bishop]
With the support of Imaginate, Jude and Jon roped in a couple of artist friends [Ruth Janssen and Andy McGeoch] to develop the idea for Grandad and Me and so it grew, becoming the company's first full length production which premiered in May 2014 at Imaginate before touring Scotland and the UK.
Grandad and Me is a living storybook about loss, longing and the treasures of memory and imagination.
The show surrounds a young girl who is missing her Grandad – he has gone, even though his favourite job was being her Grandad. Led by found objects and her imagination, the young girl traces his footsteps on a magical adventure through time and space.
