Trailer for The Arbor.

The Arbor is the powerful true story of English playwright Andrea Dunbar and her troubled relationship with her daughter Lorraine. When Andrea died tragically at the age of 29 in 1990, Lorraine was just ten years old. The Arbor catches up with Lorraine in the present day, also at 29; ostracized from her family’s estate and now in prison, serving a sentence for manslaughter for the death of her son. The director recorded audio interviews with Lorraine and other members of the Dunbar family over a period of two years. The material was edited to form an audio 'screenplay' which actors lip-synched to the voices of the interviewees. This footage is intercut with archive footage and extracts from a re-staging of Andrea's first play.
