Apple to Grandma

Saskia Janse, playwright


3 actors/puppeteers
Originally produced by Speeltheater Holland in 2001
Run Time: 75 minutes
Audience recommendation: All Ages

Josie is very disappointed. Since her grandma had to move to a nursing home, she isn’t allowed to stay overnight with her anymore. When grandma was still living in her own beautiful house they used to pick apples and Josie could bring them to the attic for her. Josie decides to make a beautiful painting for her grandma, and bring her an apple from the old apple tree, their favorite place.

This play is inspired by children’s drawings. A giant sketchbook and pencil and drawings that come alive are the ingredients of this play, full of imagination and humor.

“…a charming and imaginative romp.” -Seattle Times
