A Reason To Talk
Written and Performed by Sachli Gholamalizad

In association with Theatre Royal Plymouth and Summerhall

Is it a story of extremes, of bi-cultural upbringing, or is it simply the story of all mothers and daughters? Sachli Gholamalizad, a young Belgian actress of Iranian descent, questions her troubled relationship with her mother. Fusing together recordings, diary excerpts, memories, novels and soundscapes from both Belgium and Iran, Sachli dives into her family’s history and the contradictions in the lives of these three women, confronting both her mother and grandmother in a thrilling and unruly multi-media performance.

Written and Performed by Sachli Gholamalizad
