Some Blow Flutes

October 24 - November 4

Some Blow Flutes is a new play by HomeFirst Theatre’s Artistic Director, Mary Vingoe. The play deals with the effects of memory loss, both that brought on by illness and that which is self-induced as a way of numbing pain. The play asks the question; How can we heal when we cannot remember? Inspired by a quote from the I Ching which refers to how we respond to tragedy, Some Blow Flutes is the story of Costas Frangoulis, an elderly Greek shoe repair man whose wife Elena suffers from dementia and whose marriage has been eroded by a family secret. His life is altered when Sandra, a professional organizer who cannot begin to organize her own life, enters his shop. His teenage granddaughter Leah who cares for her grandmother is best friends with Sandra’s estranged daughter Marijke. Marijke is fourteen and pregnant. An unlikely friendship between Costas and Sandra and a chance meeting between Elena and Marijke turn to an unravelling of past lives and hidden grievances which play out with unexpected results.
