Grandma on the moon
“Where do grandma’s go when they die? There’s only one thing for it, an investigation!”
Leaving their den at the bottom of the garden, Timmy (age 10) and Poppy (age 5) go on an action packed adventure to try and find Poppy’s grandma who has recently died. Poppy wants to tell her “something really important” but they’ve got to find her first!
What do you see?
You would not want to be a resident at Marshall Joan’s Care Home. Demotivated staff, no stimulation and a culture that lacks care. Fortunately they’ve just failed their CQC inspection leading to a change of ownership and a new management team.
Are things about to change?
Let’s hope so!
Grandma, remember me?
This play is written from the perspective of a young child, Lilly, whose grandma develops Alzheimer’s.
It explores their changing relationship from Lilly’s initial recognition that there is something wrong with her grandma, through the unfolding challenges and final acceptance and understanding of the disease.
