Canoe Theatre and Theatrau  Sir  Gâr  present

This Incredible Life

By Alan Harris

Mab has spent her life telling stories. 

Incredible stories. 

She was a jet-setting journalist, putting people’s lives into print.

As a young boy, her nephew Robert, hung on her every word. 

He doesn’t listen anymore. 

In a time when fake news has made it into the vernacular, and the line between fact and fiction becomes blurred, does truth really matter?

Let Alan Harris’ latest comedy sweep you off your feet with live music, film and a story that will lift the spirits and warm your heart, MGM style.

The performance on Thursday 27th September will have captions, audio description and a touch tour that will take place at 6:30pm. 

Friday 28th September will have an afternoon matinee alongside a morning of Dementia Friendly activities. Please see below for the schedule. 

Dementia Friendly Theatre Days

Canoe Theatre invite you to a Dementia Friendly theatre day, open to all. This is a sociable, relaxed and welcoming day of workshops, complimentary refreshments and good conversation.

As part of the day there will be a performance of This Incredible Life, a play that draws upon Wales in the 60s and 70s. The performance is ticketed with companion seats available. The play is 90 minutes long including an Interval where refreshments will be served.

You can come along for the afternoon or call in at your leisure. We look forward to welcoming you.


What is a “Dementia Friendly” performance?

The play has been created to enable a relaxed audience experience:

  • The theatre will be well lit with comfortable sound levels.

  • There will be more space between seats.

  • You can leave the theatre and re-enter as and when you need to.

  • Refreshments will be served.

  • Friendly volunteers will help and direct throughout the day.
