An extraordinary play about an ordinary family, balancing the challenges of daily life whilst living with dementia. A warm, humorous and uplifting story, infused with familiar music.

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Leeds Playhouse and Curve production - Maggie May by Frances Poet.

A world premiere of a witty and joyful family story.

Maggie and Gordon first met in 1971 dancing to the sound of Rod Stewart. Now in their sixties, and still very much in love, they’ve been finishing each other’s songs all their sun-shiny marriage. But now Maggie is feeling foggy and can’t always find the words. Her son and new girlfriend are coming to dinner and her best friend is asking questions.

Perhaps it’s time everyone learned a bit more about some family secrets?

An extraordinary play about an ordinary family, balancing the challenges of daily life whilst living with dementia. A warm, humorous and uplifting story, infused with familiar music, all about enduring love by award-winning playwright Frances Poet.

Look out for The Listening Booth in our foyer – an interactive installation amplifying the voices of people living with dementia.
