This new production looking at dementia is written by Fiona Evans and Directed by Chris Monks
That’s life, that’s what all the people say; You’re riding high in April, shot down in May… Welcome, to the coolest party in town. Kick back, snap a Dunhill, help yourself to the liquor cart and let Frank ‘The Voice’ Sinatra serenade you ‘till the wee small hours. Well that’s what’s going on in ex-club singer Geordie’s head anyway. His dementia induced hallucinations are causing daughter Nancy major headaches that make her wonder ‘what would Ava Gardner do?’
Presented by Live Theatre Newcastle
