“Sundowner”…play explores the relationships of memory and of family.

I attended the opening of “Sundowner” at Parramatta Riverside Theatre last night. Directed by Kate Denborough and starring Helen Morse, its the story of a writer in her late 50s who has young onset dementia. A strong and compelling performance with moments of raw emotion and of tender poignance, the play explores the relationships of memory and of family. What was unexpected for me, and particularly impressive, was the use of modern dance and its choreography brought by KAGE. It brought a whole new dimension to the exploration of issues of memory and dementia.
Commencing a national tour with performances in many towns in all states (details at http://www.kage.com.au/project/sundowner/book-tickets1 ) I highly recommend this.
