The first piece Moment Of Grace by Bren Gosling takes us back to the 1980s and the last time the country faced a crisis over a virus.
The play perfectly balances entertainment with an honest, powerful portrayal of the impact dementia can have on families and relationships. Highly recommended, but prepare to be put through the emotional wringer.
Louise Coulthard’s writing is of a very high quality, and a play that could have been worthy or predictable in different hands is moving, complex and real. Cockamany is a true delight, and Coulthard a serious talent.
This beautifully written show is hilarious, heart-warming and painfully realistic; an emotional rollercoaster that will leave you in tears and wanting to hug your own loved ones tight. Don’t forget your tissues.
In the world of Cockamamy, a Lustrum Award-winning play, Louise Coulthard uses her own experiences to depict the experience of how dementia can affect a household.
The writer and actress spoke to Love London Love Culture about her play Cockamamy, playing at the Hope Theatre from the 12th June.
Overall it is a good, if uneven, workman-like production of The Importance of Being Earnest that struggles, at times, to be funny. It delivers the goods without any flourishes of inspiration.
Kerry Ellis will star as Gwendolen, her first non-singing role, at selected venues in the 2018 UK tour of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.
