“Miriam Margolyes, Amit Shah and Louise Coulthard star in 20-minute play written by Coulthard, directed by Michael Fentiman and produced by Original Theatre. It's a glimpse into the life of grandmother with dementia and her granddaughter during lockdown and the confusion that comes with an unexpected supermarket delivery. The play, first seen at the Camden Fringe in 2016 and subsequently at the Edinburgh Fringe, is inspired by Coulhard’s experiences of caring for her own grandmother, which she has described as being alternately heart-breaking and hilarious.”
“A tender portrayal of experiencing dementia in lockdown and the power of love to overcome it.”
