Bea has always felt that she does not fit into Yorkshire life, that she doesn’t quite belong. Two days ago, her mother dropped a bombshell and, disorientated by what she’d heard, Bea flees to Italy to try and fit together the pieces of her family’s story.
Among the washing lines of Napoli’s rooftops, the hidden truths of three generations are revealed. The story stretches across history as different eras collide - from the war-torn decisions made in 1944 to the present day.
Napoli is a story of truth, memory and forgiveness, exploring heritage and identity. It questions whether the ghosts of our family’s past shape our present and challenge our future.
Flying Cloud’s vibrant style mixes Technicolor spectacle, movement, music and emotionally charged drama. It aims to excite, entertain and challenge perceptions through inspiring stories from around the world.
