About

Deborah Pearson: HISTORY, HISTORY, HISTORY

A live documentary exploring the history of a cinema, a football star and a family. Deborah Pearson explores the connect and disconnect between the personal and the political while projecting the entirety of a Hungarian film that was meant to be premiered on the day the Budapest Uprising started. As Pearson loosely translates this 1956 football comedy, it gives way to the stories of a writer who lost his name, an actor who lost his voice, and a country that lost its revolution.

Deborah Pearson is a writer, performer and dramaturg born in Canada and based in the UK. She founded and co-directs the artist collective Forest Fringe.  

A House on Fire commission with Théâtre Garonne (Toulouse) and bit teatergarasjen (Bergen) funded by Culture Europe, developed in part at the National Theatre Studio and the Norwich and Norfolk Festival.   


"An intricate, endlessly inventive examination of the shifting nature of truth seen through the unlikely prism of a 1956 Hungarian football film-comedy. Hilarity ensues."  - Culture Vulture

"Its potent blend of uplifting possibility and heartrending pathos make for an enchanting 90 minute show." (Five Stars). - The Fix Magazine

"A complete delight" - Andrew Haydon

"An absolute joy" - The Scotsman

“It’s a story full of humour… stylistically it reminds me of Ernst Lubitsch… and it’s a story of tender poignancy… in speaking of her own diaspora experience, she speaks to every child of every diaspora.”  - Maddy Costa
