Mnemorian

Desperate for answers to a mysterious neurological issue, 16-year-old Shay visits their estranged grandfather Marshall and he discloses an incredible secret: their bloodline has the ability to recall ancestral memories. A veiled metaphor for neurodiversity, MNEMORIAN is a poignant exploration of the past's influence on the present and the potential for healing through understanding and acceptance.

    A short play that jumps straight into the conflict, and reveals a whole new world within a few minutes. A worthy addition for any theatre looking for small plays that contain big ideas, with a multi-generational cast that offers juicy roles for an older and a younger actor.

    Haunting and strangely reassuring. A tale that touches upon the most active ghosts in the world, our memories. Annie Considine opens the doors for countless stories, and I want to be in the front row for each of them!

    Mnemorian excellently examines family relationships, ghosts, death, memories, neurodiversity, and more in a short time span. I was instantly transported to the world Annie Considine has created.
