Elizabeth Godber said:
“This production will be performed verbatim, which will be very exciting for both the actors and the audience.”
“I am also pleased to say that we will be taking time after each performance to talk to members of the audience.”
“Also I very much hope that this new show will raise awareness of dementia. Hopefully, it can open up lines of conversation with people with dementia and their families about how they deal with it.”
“It is especially fitting that the performances take place in Libraries as well. Libraries offer a wealth of free support for those living with dementia and their carers. It should be considered as an excellent starting point for information after a diagnosis of dementia.”
Tickets for the performance cost £5 each and are available now online or also by calling 01482 392699.
