Canoe needs you! Help us fill in the blanks…

This autumn Canoe Theatre and Theatrau Sir Gâr will present a new touring Dementia Friendly production of This Incredible Life by Alan Harris and we need your help.

To make the production more relevant to local audiences, the play will be rewritten to include local references to spark memories and recognition.

That’s where you come in!

We’re touring to Llanelli, Merthyr, Aberystwyth, Abertillery, Cardiff, Conwy, Bangor and Blackwood and we’re looking for the following local tips:

  • A street that has Mock Tudor fronted houses
  • A local newspaper in the 1970s
  • A plush hotel you would have a wedding reception in
  • A Local pub in the 1960s
  • A nightclub/late bar in the 1960s
  • Somewhere you would have a wake in the 1970s
  • A furniture shop in the 1960s/70s
  • A department store in the 1960s/70s
  • An area with farms locally

We’re also looking for local photographs from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s to display at venues as a way to enhance the world of the play.

Can you help? Get in touch – you can comment on our blog (below), email us or contact us on Twitter or Facebook. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Canoe Theatre and Theatrau Sir Gâr present

This Incredible Life

by Alan Harris

Mab  has  spent  her  life  telling  stories.

Incredible  stories.

She  was  a  jet-setting  journalist,  putting  people’s  lives  into  print.

As  a  young  boy,  her  nephew  Robert,  hung  on  her  every  word.

He  doesn’t  listen  anymore.

In  a  time  when  fake  news  has  made  it  into  the  vernacular,  and  the line between  fact  and  fiction  becomes  blurred,  does  truth  really  matter?

Let  Alan  Harris’  latest  comedy  sweep  you  off  your  feet  with  live  music, film  and  a  story  that  will  lift  the  spirits  and  warm  your  heart,  MGM style. 

Coming to a theatre near you in Autumn 2018 with Dementia Friendly performance and activities at all venues.
