After an acclaimed debut in Milan and Edinburgh the Nobody’s Child Theatre Company brings “Circular – Strada Circolare” to London, performing at The Lion & Unicorn Theatre from Monday 15th to Friday 19th August as part of the Camden Fringe Festival 2016.
Written and produced by Anna Carfora, Circular – Strada Circolare is the captivating story of the relationship between an old lady and her niece. Strongly connected to one another, they are travelling in search of the meaning of Life while walking towards the old lady’s last destination: the nursing home. On their journey, they make different symbolic encounters: the ‘cool crowd’, a ‘doctor’, a ‘father’ and ‘a lover’. “Circular – Strada Circolare” illustrates a moment of passage in the lives of the two women. At the end of the way they find the end of life and a new beginning.
“I wrote this Show when I had a lot of questions about the meaning of Life. By the time I finished writing it, I also found my answers.” – Anna Carfora
Circular – Strada Circolare is Anna Carfora’s first play. The show was originally written in Italian and has been translated by english writer Tim Parks, who commented:
“It has a sort of lyrical formality. I like its strangeness and sincerity”. – Tim Parks
Nobody’s Child is a Theatre Company composed of London based very talented Italian performers. The entire ensemble cast have a solid preparation in theatre practice, achieved both in Italy and in UK.

We will try to see them all but we surely don’t wanna miss Circular. Why?
