Two more opportunities are looming to see the Peppermint Muse production of Lavender Junction which previewed in St Albans earlier this year and played at the Edinburgh Festival.
The one-woman show infused with memories of colonial India was inspired by writer and performer Lisa White’s family history.
It is set during the waning year of the British Raj. An ordinary woman shares her innermost thoughts and feelings; witty recollections and a rich tapestry of characters are revealed against the backdrop of a mysterious land.
Lavender Junction garnered four star reviews from the British Theatre Guide and the Edinburgh Guide which delighted Lisa. She said: “Whilst aspects of the play are very personal to my grandmother, it’s ultimately a tender tale of love and it was hugely satisfying to have strangers tell us how much it touched them.
“One couple waited after the show and shared how they were researching their own family history and were deeply moved by the piece.”
