A moving play about the effects dementia has on a family is to be performed at Falmouth later this month.

Grandma Remember Me was today presented at the Houses of Parliament as part of a national tour.

Sarah Newton, the Conservative MP for Truro and Falmouth, hosted the play for its London performance and took to Twitter to speak of her delight at its reception.

At the heart of the play is a beautiful story about a special relationship between a Grandma and her granddaughter.

It looks at the wider impact that the debilitating disease which causes memory loss has on the family and shows how it is still possible to live well with dementia and maintain an emotional connection with loved ones.

The performance at The Poly in Falmouth on Friday December 13 has been sponsored by Falmouth Dementia Action Alliance, which works to raise awareness of the condition and make the town a dementia friendly place.

A spokesman for the group said: “We are pleased to be able to offer such a prestigious piece of work to the people of Falmouth and around about.”

Following the performance, The Falmouth Dementia Action Alliance is inviting people to become a Dementia Friend and join a series of informal, fun sessions.
