About this show

Set in 1955, Gretty Good Time is a dark comedy that tells the story of Gretty, who has been forced to live her life in a nursing home after a childhood bout with polio left her paralyzed. Gretty is visited in her dreams by Hideko, a young Japanese woman whose face was disfigured in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. They climb onboard Gretty's flying wheelchair and soar backwards through time to confront the painful memories that haunt them. Mixing historical fact, poetic flights of fancy, and an Epic Theatre sensibility, Gretty Good Time explores contemporary issues through the framework of a strong character journey. Part of the 2010 International VSA Festival.
