“We’re all immigrants”

— Orchowski, Obama, Pope Francis

Based on real testimonies, A Bench on the Road is a rich piece of musical and visual storytelling which explores women’s experience of immigration through the lens of Scottish-Italian immigrants from 1850-1950. The play tells stories of Scottish and Italian women divided, yet united, battling for identity and belonging.

Spanning a century of unprecedented radical change, the diverse experiences of women from two cultures intertwine. Based on hundreds of interviews collected over thirty years, this play brings to life stories of our mothers, unlocking the past and asking pertinent questions about our future.
