Background


Winner of the Lustrum Award for Outstanding New Play, this heartbreaking and hilarious tale highlights the incredible bond between Alice and Rosie as they face change, chaos, and confusion.


Based on a true story, Louise Coulthard's sell-out, debut play is a tender portrayal of what it is to have dementia and care for someone living with the disease.


It previewed at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre, London, followed by an award-winning run at Summerhall, Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
