The Archive of Educated Hearts

Jersey Arts Centre

Event Overview

by Casey Jay Andrews / Lion House Theatre

Supported by Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey

25 minute performance

Scrawled diary entries, answer-phone messages blinking on an old landline, a shoebox of postcards and cassette tapes winding stories across years and continents. The Archive is an intimate storytelling installation containing the remarkable moments that make up a lifetime. The audience are surrounded by relics and keepsakes that allow a glimpse into stories of kindness and courage; fragments of absolute joy and incomprehensible heartbreak.

The Archive is crafted from true stories of families facing breast cancer.
