Q&A with Grandad and Me

Q&A with Grandad and Me

We have powerful family play Grandad & Me at the Lemon Tree on Friday 6 April 2018. 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.




Can you tell me a little about the company, The Letter J?

The Letter J was formed way back in 2012, by friends who had an idea to create a piece of work, using our varied artistic disciplines: music. dance and visual art.

Imaginate supported us to develop our concept through their ideas fund and from this we created Grandad and Me. We've been lucky enough to tour the show throughout the UK, and performed as part of the Made in Scotland showcase at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015.

Can you tell me a little about the show?

Grandad and Me is a story about a little girl who is looking for her beloved grandad. retracing his steps through imaginary play and remembering their stories together. It is a story about loss. longing and the treasures of memory.

Can you describe the show in 5 words:

Reflective. playful. moving, funny, heartfelt

What inspired the show?

Jon's illustration of a little girl hugging her grandad was the starting point. Jude never knew either of her grandads but Ruth had a really special relationship with her 'Opa', so we used our experiences to form the story of grandad and me.

Is it easy to create a show for children that appeals and has an impactful message?

Our hope was to make a piece of theatre that all generations could enjoy together and engage with, it's definitely not just a show for children.

It wasn't necessarily easy to make the work but it felt important to tell a story that allowed conversations to open up for families, around the issues of loss, grief and memory. Our main compass was 'does it make us laugh? Does it make us cry?. If so, let's keep it.

How do you want children and families to feel when they leave the show?

Full of love for each other and the people who have shown care for them. It ac­knowledges how difficult it can be to let go of those who have formed a family and the treasures that can be taken from their memory. The flip side of grief seems to be to celebrate life. So loved, brave and courageously tearful!

What do you have planned for the future?

We'd love to make more work together and are looking for opportunities to do just

Thank you so much to the creatives of Grandad and Me for answering these questions.
