A Migrant Ball of Thread by Sonia Gregorio 

Translated by Sophie Stevens 

Directed by Mariana Gándara 

This is the story of four women, in a place very similar to an ant’s nest. Every year, a man leaves and promises to return with the prospect of a better life. Every year, a woman is left waiting. This is a community in rural Oaxaca.

A place where prayers are stitched into handkerchiefs. Where daughters only know their fathers through phone calls. Where wives are married to ghosts.

Field Studiesand Migrant Ball of Threadwere developed through a writers group for emerging writers and theatre makers from Mexico, run in partnership with Anglo Arts and Teatro UNAM in Mexico City. 

Jerwood Theatre Upstairs
