Italy is a country founded by Nonnas . They are the ones who raised you , who kept the family together and who adopted mystical solutions to cure every ailment . They are the true superheroes of the family unit and deserve to be celebrated . This production features two talented performers who regale the audience with their epic Nonna stories and compete for the honour of being voted as the winner of this hilarious ‘ Nonna challenge ’. Bring your family and friends and enjoy this cozy and convivial theatrical experience with holiday treats .
The Nonna Monologues beautifully weaves heartwarming stories and memories of this special generation of women into an unforgettable show full of laughter , love and the magic of Christmas .
