Fri 27 – Sat 28 Sep: play – Bothered & Bewildered (Merstham)

A comic drama about a family coming to term with Alzheimer’s disease is being performed in Merstham on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September, and in Godstone on Friday 11 October and Saturday 12 October.

Details of times and venues for “Bothered and Bewildered”, by Gail Young, are on the poster above, and tickets are available online.

Ace Theatre Company, who are putting on the production, say:

“The play is a comic drama that follows Irene and her two daughters as they begin a long journey in which the girls lose their mum in spirit but not in body.

As her family struggle to come to terms with her Alzheimer’s, Irene’s past passion for romantic fiction blurs with reality.

She discusses with her unseen (by anyone other than herself) and witty companion, Barbara Cartland, how best to write her ‘memory book’, disclosing to Barbara long kept family secrets that she would never reveal to anyone else.”

The performances will raise funds for Dementia Action Alliance, and are being supported by East Grinstead & District Lions Club.
