In 2009 writer and performer Caroline Horton took her ninety year-old Grandmother on one last trip to Paris. Having grown up hearing her Nana's vivid stories of the city, Caroline excitedly planned their Parisian adventure. But it's hard to have an unforgettable trip with someone who can't remember what they were doing yesterday. And sight-seeing is not much fun with somebody who is virtually blind. A funny and heartbreakingly poignant journey through the city of love and the ravages of time.

Caroline Horton is a young writer/performer with a talent for comedy, telling stories and touching hearts. She was named Best Solo Performer at The Stage Awards 2010 for her show 'You're Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy'. Her follow up play, 'Mess', won Best Ensemble at The Stage Awards 2012 as well as the Argus Angel Award in 2013.
