What a brilliant production! Congratulations to NTW and Patrick Jones for such an entertaining play. Patrick has tapped into so many issues arising out of the subject matter of Dementia. He definitely got the inner voice of all those affected. Though Welsh based this play has definitely got a universal appeal. While the play is truly entertaining I feel Augusto Boal would have been proud of Patrick subtly raising potential political issues i.e. the empathy / no empathy and cutbacks to services for those affected by Dementia. The cast were fantastic and in particular Ollie Wood playing the part of Scott. The character of Scott is significant insofar  as he suffers because he has gone beyond the call of duty in helping a vulnerable adult. This story line within the play has the makings of another play. The technical side and set design was slick. Jon Cox proved excellent on sound production. And to top it all, thank you NTW for a free and informative programme! Well done.
