“The play takes us convincingly into the mind and spirit of the central character, a woman with dementia. A spellbinding performance.” Chris Carling, (author of “But then Something Happened”.) http://www.chriscoach.com/
Audience members have commented favourably on the pacing, the humour, and the energy of the show, and the lack of self pity of the main character. Which mean that although we see the tragedy of the central character, the show is not depressing.
Libby has long been interested in the process of dementia in all its forms, and in what it feels like to be making that tragic journey. People with dementia usually remain lucid enough to know what is happening to them, at least during the early stage of the disease.
Libby did the research for the show, but found that, although she writes great academic essays, she writes rubbish dialogue!!
Enter Caroline, who listened to what Libby was going on about, took the research and created the script, which has been a joy to work with.
Paul came on the scene a month before the scratch night where an extract from the play was first performed. He has contributed energy, enthusiasm, bucket loads of encouragement, and of course the essential objective view.
