New play published

Derby Theatre has published Nicky Bellenger’s new play “Everywhere”, to be performed by young people but exploring and shining a light on dementia in a sensitive, stigma-reducing way.  Available free, the play is also intended as a resource for all ages to support a greater understanding of the dementia. “Everywhere” is the result of a creative and compassionate collaboration between Bellenger, attendees to Derby Theatre and Universal Services for Carers in Derby ‘Carers Café’ and members of Derby Theatre’s Youth Theatre.  “This project has been very close to my heart,” Bellenger says.  “I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a special group of people living with dementia, carers and young theatre makers.”
