At age seventeen, Lilka Kadison flees Poland on the eve of World War II. Seventy years later in her modest North Hollywood home, she's spending the afternoon hassling her son, wrestling her caregiver, and arguing with a ghost who keeps rearranging her furniture - and her memories. Join us on this transcendent journey from present to past, carefully handcrafted and told through magic illusion, toy theatre, music and imagination. It’s a story of love, loss, the creative impulse and memories that must never be denied.
