A PLAY BASED ON THE BEST SELLING NOVEL
Adapted by Christine Mary Dunford and based on the best selling novel by Lisa Genova Still Alice tackles the subject of dementia and is part of a festival of theatre, dementia and hope.
Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with an early onsite Alzheimers at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and drawn on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible.
Alice strives to remain true to the woman she has always been, while relationships shift within her family, in her work and most importantly with herself. Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease – its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.
Directed by David Grindley it features British actress Sharon Small as Alice, this play is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.
Still Alice is at West Yorkshire Playhouse from 9 February to 3 March. Bookings: 0113 213 7700.
