Episode 1

A series of monologues adapted from interviews in which dementia sufferers recall their lives. Funny, sad, moving or angry, the mystery is human identity as much as its loss.

A series of monologues adapted from two books, 'Ancient Mysteries' and 'Tell Mrs Mill her husband is still dead' (compiled, edited and published by David Clegg).

They are adapted from interviews in which dementia sufferers recall their lives. The pieces are funny, sad, moving and mysterious in what they say about the human spirit and mind.
