A Migrant Ball of Thread
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 Studies and Migrant Ball of Thread were 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.
