The Republic of Estonia came into being on 24 February 1918 and, despite the suspension of its independence for half a century, was re-established on 20 August 1991. Grandfather tells a family story reflecting the most important historical and dramatic events of Estonia’s past. The play will be in English and last about one hour.
