Grandma remember me?

Az2B began it’s journey in October 2012 with Grandma Remember Me? A powerful, moving story looking at the journey of dementia through the eyes of a child. Applicable for all ages, it explores the wider impact on family, the need for support an understanding within our communities and the importance of memories and relationships within our lives and how to keep and treasure them.

The most powerful play I have ever experienced! I wanted to say how wonderful your production of Grandma Remember Me? was! The portrayal of grandma was so accurate and your play brought our the positive moments as well as showing the obvious stress and headache of having a family member with Alzheimer’s. The puppetry was excellent! The humour was just right! I want to thank you for bringing the reality of Alzheimer’s into people’s awareness is such a brilliant, entertaining way. ps loved Shandy the dog! Wanted to take him home with me, but I don’t think my cat would be too pleased!

After several national tours and international performances in India, we responded to requests from our audience to develop a second play exploring the next stage of dementia.

Can’t express how amazing this performance was!
Life changing!

What do you see?

The collaboration process began in March 2016 supported by Arts Council funding. Acting as a companion piece to Grandma Remember Me? What do you see? explores the later stages of dementia within a care home setting and the importance of good leadership to impact positive change. It looks at the importance of life histories within person centred care, challenges taboos around death and shows the possibility of choice and the empowerment advance end of life care planning brings.

This production touched my heart. It made me think deeply about relationships with the ones I love. Thank you. 

I was very impressed with this play. It seemed to capture very clearly and simply the stark differences which exist re dementia care. In particular there was a real sense of the difference that good leadership can have on a care home and the need for carers to feel cared for. This reflects the work of individuals such as David Sheard.
