Eleanor’s Story: An American Girl in Hitler’s Germany - Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre

Ingrid Garner wrote and performs the internationally-acclaimed theatrical production of her grandmother Eleanor Ramrath Garner’s award-winning memoir, detailing her youth as an American caught in WWII Berlin.

During the great depression, Eleanor’s family moves from her beloved America to Germany, where a new job awaits her father. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic and return becomes impossible. Eleanor struggles to maintain stability, hope and identity in a world of terror and contrasts.

This true story, with its themes of social and political turmoil, is strikingly relevant almost 80 years later. In a thoroughly physical production, accompanied by sound, images and video, the audience is immersed in her grandmother’s harrowing journey of survival.

★★★★★ “The powerful story is unforgettable – a must-see for history buffs and theatre-aficionados alike” – FringeReview.co.uk
