The Smallest Story Ever Told
A bold and authentic new play raising awareness of early-onset Alzheimer's disease
Charlie and Amy were the darlings of the children’s literature circle. But, when Amy developed early onset Alzheimer’s disease, their former lives existed only in the story Charlie told her every day. Starting from the present day and unraveling back to when they first met, this new play highlights the importance of precious memories shared with the ones we love, and how devotion and heroism can often be the same thing. The tumultuous shifting world of Alzheimer’s disease is brought to life with sharp authenticity drawn from the personal experiences of playwright R J Wilkinson. Bold direction from David Macintosh Loumgair and Elizabeth Kent make this new play, produced alongside Alzheimer’s Society UK, a crucial wake up call. Featuring a highly talented cast and creative team, the play is a must see at the King's Head Theatre this Autumn. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. The show on Sunday 22nd will be a relaxed performance, where those diagnosed with Alzheimer's and dementia are particularly welcomed.
''RJ Wilkinson plays arpeggio with his audiences feelings...interspersed with sudden flashes of utter genius."
