BUSCA will host the next Centre Stage production “Forget Me Not “- The Alzheimer's Whodunnit

The 'seriously funny’ (Sunday Mirror) Leicester-based comic, poet and psychiatric nurse Rob Gee strikes storytelling gold with his smart, dark and very witty comedy-theatre crime show set on a dementia ward.

Jim's wife has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He's determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has dementia. It's a case worthy of the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do. By turns hilarious comedy and thought-provoking drama, this is a one-man triumph; part social commentary, part black comedy, part Cluedo and 100 % entertaining.

While Rob is now a full-time writer he was previously a registered psychiatric nurse. The NHS (including the Leicestershire NHS) is now using the show to help train healthcare staff in the area of compassion and ethics. So Rob has achieved the rare feat of combining serious and upsetting subject matter with comedy and great skill, producing a highly entertaining piece of theatre.

Rob says: “For everyone who says, “I don't want to see this, my dad had Alzheimer's”, you tend to have two others saying “I really want to see this, my dad had Alzheimer's.” And all of them are talking about it.”


The show will take place on Friday 25th January starting at 7:30pm in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre.

Full price tickets on the door are: standard £11, concessions £10, and students in full time education £6. All tickets bought in advance receive a £1 discount. Advance tickets are available from the Flower Shop, the library and by Paypal or card from www.busca.org.uk.

There will be full bar, easy disabled facilities and plenty of parking.
