About the Event
All Is Mended is a comedy with a serious side. A repurposing of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” telling a new story of life in a care home. It’s about magic and remembering, resilience and forgetting, old age and young dreams and of course love. A shape-shifting drama, funny and sad, real and dreamlike, interwoven with recorded extracts from our collected conversations with elders from local care homes. Performers Gillie Stoneham and Philip Robinson play all the parts, come and lift your spirits and be away with the fairies for an hour.
These performances will be accompanied by our exhibition at the Arts Centre: “Old Hands @ Art” - care home residents' art work; and our book “All is Mended - a collection of care home voices gathered in the time of Covid” available from The Bookery. This project is partnered by Crediton Arts Centre.
