A play about the myths, ideas and realities of migration and identity in the twenty-first century.

Grazyna Antkiewicz lived.
Robert Dziekanski died.

Two people from Poland. One real, one imagined. What happened – or might have happened – between there and here? The distance from living the dream to waking up in a shared room in Scotland with mushrooms growing out of the carpet. From desperately missing your child to falling in love with a foreigner.

Cherry Blossom is a play by Catherine Grosvenor in collaboration with Lorne Campbell, Mark Grimmer and Leo Warner. It was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 2008.
