MakeShift Ensemble presents
Wednesday 20 February 8.00pm in the Cramphorn Studio
“Powerful…and very clever!” – British Theatre Guide
Starting from the home, the sofa is where we make new worlds as children and seek solace as adults—using this central object the piece examines how experience changes our reflections on memories. The sofa becomes the stage on which we view the growth of our characters and their memories of a loved one living with dementia, and the changing perspectives they bring to those memories.
The MakeShift Ensemble with their distinct and compelling style, aim to discover the effects of memory and ‘unmemory’ on family relationships . Inspired by real life events and experiences the piece will tell the stories with humour and pathos, that sometimes go untold.
With an original score by Laurence Aldridge, the show includes puppetry, object manipulation and the most versatile sofa in the world!

“Thank you for talking about dementia in such a thoughtful way.”
“Sofa (is) a fascinating evocation of memory and meaning. Thank you for bringing us this memorable piece. It created a whole world with two performers, props and effective sound scape. The puppetry was awesome.”
“I was so wowed and inspired by this incredibly clever piece of theatre! I cried, I laughed and thoroughly enjoyed the powerful rollercoaster I was taken on! Amazing, thank you”
