ACT |Arts Collective Theatre
Tonight, Arts Collective Theatre (ACT) will preview its 2020 Social Justice Theatre Project Wherever It Takes You, an original one act play about the true stories of Windsor Essex residents and their struggles with Alzheimers and Dementia.
An over-compensating husband, squabbling siblings deciding the fate of their mother, and a brother and sister trying to come to terms with their younger brother’s diagnosis of early onset dementia, form the three storylines of the play.From the creative team who brought you “Elder Affairs” and “In Flight”, Wherever It Takes You is a solemn and poignant play beautifully captures the emotional rollercoaster experienced by both those living with dementia and those who care for them.
ACT has assembled a cast of individuals, over the age of 50, who take the audience on a turbulent journey of love, anger, and acceptance. Watch a video with our cast talking about the importance of this production here.
There are approximately 560,000 Canadians currently living with dementia. If you haven’t been directly impacted by this disease, you likely will be within the next 15 years when the number is expected to rise to more than 900,000.
Wherever It Takes You is originally conceived and directed by Chris Rabideau, and written by Linda Lord. PREVIEW TONIGHT AT 7:30PMin the Roth Theatre at Shō Studios, 628 Monmouth Rd.
ACT wants to say a special thank you to Caesars Windsor Cares for being the presenting sponsor for this moving and impactful local production.
