In May we will perform Still Alice, a heartbreaking but hopeful adaptation of the award-winning book by Lisa Genova, adapted for the stage by Christine Mary Dunford.
Alice Howland is a university professor at the height of her career when she is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Fiercely independent, with a husband and two children, Alice strives to make sense of her changing world as her memory begins to fail.
The play, directed by Sali Pike, puts Alice onstage with Herself, providing the audience with an extraordinary window into the experience of living with dementia.
The cast are Julie Sissons, Michelle Barter, Andy Gill, Scarlett Dixon, Calum Hearne, Kelly Webb and Chris Durham.
We are pleased to support the work of Alzheimer’s Society and will be making a donation in aid of the charity.
Still Alice was originally published by Simon and Schuster. Still Alice premiered at Lookingglass Theatre in Chicago, April 2013. This amateur production of Still Alice is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
Still Alice is at the Tivoli Theatre from 23rd to 25th May.
