A moving production that manages to find the positivity at the centre of an otherwise devastating illness

The Stage on Still Alice

Best-selling novel by Lisa Genova
Adapted by Christine Mary Dunford
Directed by David Grindley

Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and draw on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible.

Alice strives to remain true to the woman she has always been, while relationships shift within her family, in her work and most importantly with herself. Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease - its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.

Featuring Sharon Small as Alice, this play is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.

Running time: About 1 hour and 30 minutes (no interval)

Tender, touching and remarkably insightful.
