Human Story Theatre presents
Connie's Colander by Gaye Poole

Connie is a retired domestic science teacher. Emily, her daughter, is enjoying hosting her first TV cookery show: Connie’s Colander, bringing her mother’s recipes onscreen and up to date. Sensitively, with humour and tenderness this newly written play traces the evolving relationship throughout their lives, and the impact of Connie’s Alzheimer’s. Can their relationship, and the TV show, survive?

Running time 50 minutes.
Plus 20 minute post-show Q&A with a Dementia specialist.

Pop-up, stripped back, no frills intimate theatre.

An informal atmosphere is created for the Q&A, facilitated by the two actors, with local dementia specialists able to signpost people to their local services. Building on the story within the play, the audience is also encouraged to share their own experiences, both to ‘offload’ and also to help support fellow audience members, if appropriate.

“This is a compelling play, excellently acted and tautly directed ...” (****The Oxford Times)
