Written and directed by Tanya Myers 14, 15 June, 7.30pm PREVIEWS £10 (£8 concessions) Previews only 17 - 20 and 24 - 27 June, 10:00am 28 June, 7.30pm 22 and 29 June, 2pm and 7:30pm Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes (with interval) Suitable for 12+ Darkly comic and offering glimpses of a mysterious world, this insighful play by Tanya Myers enters into the experience of dementia care. Touching minds and hearts through medical magical realism, nurses and patients search for love, rhyme and reason on 'the ward with no name'. Dancing inside out and outside in, the play moves between multiple realities where time and identity drift apart. Based on rigorous participant observation in dementia wards Inside Out of Mind builds bridges between art and science, old and young, carers and cared-for.
