Event: The Purple List a gay dementia venture

After booking you'll be sent a link to watch the play on Youtube and should then join us for the live Q&A on 23rd.


It is a 35 minute, one-man play. It opens on Sam and Derek’s wedding day and goes on to explore the highs and lows of their lives as Derek’s dementia progresses.


Told from Sam’s point of view, the play is a touching, sad, yet often funny, insight into the lives of these two gay men as they navigate their way through the care system and the changes in their personal relationship. A stand-alone piece of theatre that can also be used as a training tool in a range of issues regarding dementia and diversity for those working in social care and for those caring for, or involved with people living with dementia.


The play hopes to raise awareness around the potential issues for those caring for someone with dementia in general, and the barriers to support which members of the gay community may perceive and experience. If you'd like to know more have a look on the website purplelisttheatre

This a film version of The Purple List, which will be accompanied by a live digital Q&A on 23rd September
