Descent

“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 looking forward to reclaiming their own lives now that their 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 try to hold on to each other – and themselves – in the face of early onset dementia.

Descent doesn’t flinch from the heartbreak they face, but it also celebrates the courage, the hope, the humanity – and even the humour – they bring to the fight.

This CATS award-nominated show stars two Brennan Artists clients, Greg Powrie and Wendy Seager. The tour begins in Greenock and ends in Mull on the 20th May.
