Forget Me Not - The Alzheimer's Whodunnit

Show Details

Presented by Rob Gee

Performance date and time
Friday, 25th January 2019
7:30 PM

The 'seriously funny' (Sunday Mirror) 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 per cent entertaining.
