I work with people living with dementia and occasionally early onset dementia. When talking to relatives and friends about this subject, there is a recurring theme around how far you would let this horrendous disease take hold before taking steps yourself to end it. I have written a play addressing these very issues. It is a frank and touching, often funny short play with a Q&A at the end to engage the audience in conversation around the taboo subjects of suicide and euthanasia.

About the fundraiser
I am a professional actor, a theatre practitioner and now a playwright. I am passionate about forum theatre and my new play A Shadow Of Doubt addresses many mental health issues including dementia, depression and suicide. It is also very touching and at times very funny.
