Well, Nana, we went to Edinburgh, and here’s what the people had to say:
Opening up into surprising panoramas of grief and longing… a smart and understated Fringe find.
Upton’s memories of her Nana, before and after she started to experience symptoms of dementia, are told through a series of anecdotes emphasising the sensory layers of human experiences.
It’s no rose-tinted recollection, as we see vivacious Nana decline, her own memory slipping away, fear and confusion taking their place… One to remember
A beautifully crafted piece that charts a journey through dementia with great sensitivity.
