What makes you ‘you’?
What makes you love someone?
And is it possible to hold onto it all when everything you share begins to disappear? … or are you just clinging to the ghost of what used to be?
Descent explores one couple’s struggle to keep their love alive in the face of the raging force of dementia. It takes an unflinching look at the guilt, the anger, and the despair they’re going through. But it also celebrates the courage, the love, the acceptance, and – even – the hope that they bring to the fight.
There will be a captioned performance of DESCENT on Wed 14th October
