Directed by Tom O'Sullivan

Performed by Mel Sessions, Peter Sessions, Tracie Harris and Joe Nemeth



This play was written to support current campaigns raising awareness about dementia. Based on true stories, the four short scenes depict the problems a family must face when a mother is diagnosed with dementia and the understanding that develops between them. Medical professionals explain the points that are being illustrated and there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of the play.
