‘The Garden moves through its transformations in an engrossing, interactive style... The actors have mastered a warm, person-centred approach to audience participation.... The result is an experience that for audience members–service-users and carers alike–melds the workaday rituals of the care home with the sensory pleasures of each season in the garden, creating a little blooming of serenity in a potentially stressful environment.'
This was The Stage’s take on The Garden, our performance for people with dementia. They came to see the show at a care home in Lewisham earlier this week – it was great to have them with us.
