Connie's Colander is coming to Wycombe

Connie’s Colander is a play exploring the way lives and relationships are affected by dementia – and it is coming to High Wycombe for a special, FREE performance in October.

It tells the story of Connie, is a retired domestic science teacher. Emily, her daughter, is enjoying hosting her first TV cookery show. We witness their relationship evolving during Emily’s life and see the impact Connie’s Alzheimer’s has on them both, and on the TV show.

The play aims to take a realistic look at dementia and is suitable for general audiences and for those with an interest in the condition – including people whose own lives may be affected by it in some way.

Following the performance, there will be a Q&A session with a dementia expert.

Connie’s Colander is produced and performed by the Human Story Theatre, in association with NHS Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England South for this performance on Thursday, 19 October at 2.30pm.
