"Charlie and Amy were married for twenty-three years and darlings of the children’s literature circle. But, when Amy developed early-onset dementia, their former lives existed only in the story Charlie told her every day."

This new piece was developed using first-hand interviews, cups of tea and meetings between the company and deeply inspiring individuals living with dementia, alongside their carers and close family members.

Starting in the present day and delicately unravelling to when they first met, it painfully howls the importance of precious memories shared with the ones we love, and how devotion and heroism can often be the same thing.

Developed with support from Arts Council England, Alzheimer's Society UK, YoungDementia UK, Berwick and District Friends of Demenia, Lewisham MindCare, the beautiful Wendy Mitchell, Age Exchange and many other dementia charities.
