Karola Gajda

Karola Gajda's returning to Edinburgh with her usual blend of tragedy and comedy with her new, solo theatre show 'My Mother's Shoes', a true-life story and Karola's most personal show to date.

This brand new piece of writing is about the relationship between Karola and her late Polish mum and explores the phrase ‘to walk in your mother’s shoes’. As a child, Karola’s mum was deported by Stalin to a Siberian gulag. When she ended up in England in the 1950s, she fell dangerously ill and was misdiagnosed... with major life consequences. Her unresolved trauma impacted the family. But far from being a tale of bitterness and woe, this is the story of Karola’s love for her mum, which was deep and complex. 

Karola asks, does she – or can she – ever walk in her mother’s shoes? A show to make you laugh... and cry.

Karola's background is stand up, radio and theatre. She is also the author of the comic migration novel, 'Are My Roots Showing?' called 'hugely entertaining and often very moving' by the Yorkshire Post.
