Human Story Theatre – Dementia performance
Thursday 19th July, 1:00 pm
Southcote Library, Reading, RG30 3BA
Connie is a retired domestic science teacher. Emily, her daughter, is enjoying hosting her first TV cookery show: Connie’s Colander, bringing her mother’s recipes onscreen and up to date. Sensitively, with humour and tenderness this newly written play traces the evolving relationship throughout their lives, and the impact of Connie’s Alzheimer’s. Can their relationship, and the TV show, survive?
This is a rare opportunity to see a compelling 50 min show on the effects of dementia on a mother and daughter. This performance is open to everyone and no booking required for the Southcote performance.
The show will be followed by a Q & A with a dementia specialist who will be able to answer any questions you may have.
There will also be a short presentation after the show about how to become a dementia friend, champion and more about dementia friendly communities.
