A former registered UK and overseas nurse is set to perform his fabulously funny one-man comedy show at the weekend.
Rob Gee’s ‘Forget Me Not’ play is set to be staged at Long Clawson Village Hall on Sunday.
It is a murder mystery set on an Alzheimer’s ward and says a lot about how we treat and perceive people with dementia.
As a student nurse, Rob spent three months on a challenging behaviour ward for people with late stage Alzheimer’s. Largely based on Rob’s experiences, many of the stories depicted in the show are true. Except the murders!
The show has been described by Winnipeg Free Press as “a one-man triumph!”
Vice president at Long Clawson Village Hall, Alan Woodhouse, said: “With the withdrawl of support for the Centre Stage scheme by Melton Borough Council and Leicestershire County Council, last year, we don’t host much drama these days. However, a performance challenging our attitudes to dementia was a topic too close to so many of us these days, to pass up.”
Tickets for ‘Forget Me Not’ are £8 for adults and £5 for anyone 17 and under (the recommended youngest age is 12).
