Flora and Fauna by Amaranta Leyva

The creative & playful minds that brought you Sleeping Beauty Dreams and Jack and the Magic Bean have
teamed up to create Learning and Forgetting, a family tale about remembering.

Young Eva is excited to learn new words and ideas. Her beloved Grandpa forgets – his memories and
words aren’t close at hand anymore. But that doesn’t keep them from playing in the present and creating
new stories together. This joyful theatrical experience for kids (ages 3-7) explores intergenerational love
with warmth, laughter & puppetry.

Eva and her brother lift Grandpa’s spirits on moving day as he transitions into a new home. Follow along
as they find joy in the moment and learn understanding for a lifetime.

Written by award-winning playwright Amaranta Leyva, Learning & Forgetting is based on her own family

Recommended for ages 3+
