Description

Over the Garden Fence – Written and performed by Hayley Riley and Louise Evans

Their debut play, ‘Over the Garden Fence’ follows the story of Annabelle and her Gran Dolly. Annabelle and the audience are taken on a nostalgic journey through Gran’s life, sharing memories of happiness, sorrow and joy. It is a fast-paced, uplifting and comical exploration into family, life and relationships that promotes an awareness of dementia that is accessible to all. The stories within the play are personal.

‘Over the Garden Fence’ is one hour long. The play encourages conversation and engages audiences from all backgrounds in the discussion of not only dementia, but the importance of the individual behind the diagnosis. If you care for someone with Dementia, live with the condition or are a health care professional, care worker or work in mental health care services, it is a not to be missed experience reinforcing the message of person-centred care for Dementia patients.

The play is taking place as part of May’s ‘Drop in on Dementia’ Fylde Coast Dementia Hub just before Dementia Awareness Week. It is held at The Grand Theatre on Friday 18th May between 1pm - 4.30pm. The Dementia Hub is a ‘one stop shop’ providing support and information from a wide range of local services designed to help those affected by dementia. It’s a friendly environment, and provides access to all kinds of support for people who have been diagnosed with dementia and their carers. It might also be of interest to people who have concerns about their memory, but have not been diagnosed.
