Descent

Don’t miss DESCENT at the festival, starring Wendy Seager. The show started as A Play, A Pie and A Pint production and has since toured Scotland to rave reviews. The show runs from the 4th-20th August at Gilded Balloon.

‘If you love someone you stick by them, no matter what happens. Because that’s the deal. Isn’t it?’ 50-somethings Rob and Cathy are reclaiming their own lives now that daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled; but looming over them is a threat that could rip their future apart. Descent explores what happens as they fight with courage, hope and humanity to hold on to each other – and themselves – in the face of early onset dementia.
