The aim of this project was to develop the script “Grandma Remember Me” through an exploratory rehearsal process to create a high quality piece of theatre.
The script is written through the eyes of a young child whose Grandma develops Altzheimer’s. This is an innovative idea as Dementia is usually explored through the voice of an adult. The Altzheimer’s Society recognises that “there is a need to improve awareness, understanding and support for younger friends and
relatives of those living with dementia” They were fully supportive of this project.
It is intended to inform, challenge and inspire. It is relevant to children and young people and it is relevant to society as a whole. Altzheimer’s is a National issue, increasingly so. This project aimed to develop awareness and promote understanding.
