Description

Time is precious and when dementia is the villain, who is the criminal? This play is subtly powerful, sympathetic and sharp, sad and funny. A carer is brought in to help a family living with dementia only to discover that there is more than meets the eye. A father-daughter relationship is at breaking point and disaster is just around the corner.

Quietly impressive, and quietly moving. Recommended.

A multi-layered and moving show about the awfulness of dementia. A labour of love by its makers and that shines through.

I would highly recommend this show after going to watch it.
I was fascinated to see how dementia would be portrayed. It was an emotional experience & thought provoking.
It made me sad, smile, laugh out loud at some lines & I left feeling I knew the characters.
The 3 actors involved were excellent and portrayed their characters in a way you could relate to and drew you into the storyline.
The ending came as a surprise but added to the intrigue.
I give this 5 out of 5 stars

There is a lot in the script to like. Individual lines written from experience made the most impact including the idea of yuppies having morphed into millennials which tickled me. It is however the structure where the real value is evident. There are hints, nods and quite a few blind...
