D-Word Poster A4 version 9Denbighshire County Council Arts Service in partnership with BCUHB Arts in Health initiative has commissioned local writer and director, Janys Chambers, to write a short play about dementia – The D Word.

Janys Chambers, professional theatre and TV writer (Holby, Emmerdale) talked to people with memory-loss, their families and carers and health-care professionals, in a wide variety of situations, asking all the big scary questions.

DEMENTIA – What is it?  What causes it?  Who will get it?  Will I get it?  (Help, have I got it already?)  Can anything be done if I get it? 

The result is a surprising, funny and moving collection of inspiring characters and true stories – The D Word.

This brand-new, touching, and unexpectedly humorous piece of theatre takes a look at the new panic-button health-problem of our age – dementia.

Performance dates as follows:

Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Lecture Theatre – Wed 15th July, 3.30 pm performance

Clwyd Theatr Cymru, Clwyd Room – Sat 18th July, 8pm performance

Theatr Twm o’r Nant – Sun 19th July, 7.30pm performance.
