Deborah Wain - Notes to Self
by Deborah Wain.
Doreen has been in a care home for two years. Her son Robert visits but finds it hard to have a meaningful relationship with his mother, unlike his partner Karen. A performance at the home reveals music to have a powerful effect on Doreen. Can it offer an opportunity for Robert to make a new connection with her? A drama about Alzheimer's disease based on real experiences and interwoven with recordings of music sessions carried out in care homes and day centres.
Music performed by David Barnard, James Dinsmore and Rebecca Watson with participants in the Lost Chord music session at The Linney Centre and residents and carers at the Richmond Care Home.
Directed by Nadia Molinari.
