Middle East, the world of children who are forced to mature way too early… Four characters from different lands, four shadows and a city: Istanbul. Yeşim Özsoy’s new play based on love, death, war and a childhood lost extends from Palestine to England, Greece to Turkey. Old Child opens a space for what is lost while locations and times change and resists what will be forgotten. It invites us to hear the stories of four its characters. At times lonely, some of these stories did or could not take place with even the ones close to them.

Lasts app. 70′; no intermission.
