“How can I go to heaven if I don’t know who I am?” says Ernest to his daughter Lynne when he’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. But he also has a plan: to leave an imprint of who he is. Lynne is to be the guardian of his memory, the keeper of their past. Join them on their journey; share their hopes, fears, smiles and tears – and arrive with them as they seize the last memory.

This poignant and uplifting play will ring true for many carers and Alzheimer’s sufferers in the UK today. Its sensitive, warm humour will make the audience laugh, cry and really think.

There will be a Q&A after the performances.

“Tender and powerful. It made me think about dementia in a different way.”

“The actors dealt with the difficult subject of dementia tenderly and compassionately, picking out the humour, the positives, the memories and the ‘carpe diem’ moments in a beautiful, truly touching way…”

“Brilliant.  There was not a dry eye in the house…”
