All at once fast paced and thought-provoking, Lost Lear lands us into the world of Joy, a woman with dementia, who is being cared for through a method where people live inside an old memory.
Following the national and international tour of ‘A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings’, Dan Colley and his company have turned their sights on a very (very) loose adaptation of King Lear, examining the self and that part of us that's inaccessible to others.
Post Show Q&A: There will be a free post show Q&A with Máire-Anne Doyle, Dementia Carers Campaign Network and the company. Dementia Carers Campaign Network is a group of people who have experience caring for a loved one with dementia. They aim to be a voice of and for dementia carers in Ireland and to raise awareness of issues affecting families living with dementia.
