Description

A TALE OF LOVE, LAUGHTER, LOSS …
AND STUFFED BEARS
TOO MANY STUFFED BEARS

WHO SAYS CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS CAN’T BE CALLED PAUL?
HOW MANY CHIPS IS A PORTION?
IF WE ARE OUR MEMORIES, WHO ARE WE WHEN THEY ARE ERASED?

Comedian Dylan Jones was perfectly happy being raised in a cult. Apart from always being second best to Jesus … actually third if you include his mum’s obsession with dressing up teddy bears “for charity", Jones was surrounded by love, joy, and modern hymns.

A comedian once said that it’s easy to write jokes about sex, but harder to write jokes about love. Jones accepts the challenge with a heart-warming tale of a virgin birth, a literal bean counter, early onset dementia and ghosts.

Oh, and bears.

A funny slide show with poignant bits.

I Will Always Love You is a story of Dylan’s family. Dylan opens his closet to reveal skeletons, ghosts, eccentrics, zealots, and wicked aunties. Mostly it is the story of his Mum and Dad, who lived full and laughter rich lives before the onset of dementia.

Jones recreates the slide show held at his Mum’s before her illness, and does not shy away from the devastating effect of dementia on her and those who love her.

However, Jones sets out to prove that dementia is an opportunity to rediscover love every day. To renew that love every day. When people create such joy, you don’t forget them just because they can’t remember you.

The show has much to say to those starting a journey with dementia. Written with authority, respect and love, It’s for partners, children, family and friends. As much as it is about growing old, I Will Always Love You is about growing up, and growing together.
