An evening with dementia

ENLIGHTENS, inspires, reveals what an individual with dementia might want others to understand if he could be the teacher. - British Medical Journal. 

An Evening with Dementia, winner of the Fringe sell-out award 2010, allows us to emphasis with the state of being, called dementia. Be taken on an illuminating - and sometimes funny - adventure into the mind of an old actor cut loose from society by a fading memory.

Described as 'a triumph', 'beautifully unfolding', 'magnificent' and 'essential', Trevor T. Smith's depiction of a man who 'accepts rather than suffers from dementia' says as much about the mind in old age as it does about how society perceives and behaves towards people with dementia.

From nine o'clock there will be a discussion led by Professor June Andrews, the Director of the Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling.

Monday 6 August, 8pm-10pm, in the Hall at St John's (Venue 127). Buy tickets here or at the venue box office.
