New Plays from Finland
Remember me (2012)
Helena is a photographer in her thirties. Until recently, her life has revolved around marriage and motherhood. Anna, on the other hand, is a woman in her fifties and doesnâ€™t have a family of her own. Anna has chosen her career as a real estate agent as the centre of her life.
The story begins when Helena, who is selling her apartment the midst of divorce, invites Anna to her home to estimate its value. Anna's professionalism starts to crumble much like Helena's ideas about marriage and family life.
Both of women are at crossroads in their lives. They very quickly form a strong friendship and delve into deep discussions about life. This discussion is punctuated with flashbacks.
"Remember Me is quirky. It's a play that explores a person’s identity, and what happens when this identity seems to be taken away. When someone is gone, who will remember them? Is life something to be documented, evaluated, mourned, or celebrated? This play answers those questions with a resounding, whole-hearted affirmation of life."
