From the UK, comes a powerful piece of theatre exploring the potential issues regarding dementia and diversity for those working in social care and for those caring for, or involved with people living with dementia.
Hosted by GLBTI Rights in Ageing Inc. and Dementia Training Australia with support from Alzheimer’s WA and Leading Age Services Australia.
The Purple List is a one-man play exploring dementia care for a member of the LGBTI community, from the carer’s perspective. It opens on Sam and Derek’s wedding day and goes on to explore the highs and lows of their lives as Derek’s dementia progresses.
Told from Sam’s point of view, the play is a touching, sad, yet often funny, insight into the lives of these two gay men as they navigate their way through the care system and the changes in their personal relationship.
The 35 minute play is followed by a Q&A discussion session with the actor as Sam, and then as himself.
