IN OTHER WORDS, Matthew Seager‘s tender new play which explores the powerful effect of music on Alzheimer’s, premieres tonight at The Hope Theatre in Islington, north London, where it runs for a strictly limited season until 18 March 2017. Here’s a sneak-peek of the two-hander, directed by Paul Brotherston for Off The Middle Theatre.
They call it ‘the incident’ now. What happened, when they first met. He always said it was part of his romantic plan, but they both know that’s rubbish. Join Arthur and Jane, at the beginning, as they tell us their story.
This intimate, humorous, and deeply moving love story, explores the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and the incredible power that music has in helping us to remember the past, connect to the present, and hope for the future. Two actors lead us through fifty years of Arthur and Jane’s relationship, jumping in and out of memories and experiencing, for brief moments, a failing mind as it loses its grip on reality.
IN OTHER WORDS stars Matthew Seager as Arthur and Celeste Dodwell as Jane.
