Pip Utton’s award-winning performances of Adolf, Chaplin, Maggie, Churchill and Dickens have toured in more than 26 countries to great acclaim, winning several awards for both writing and performance. Recently Pip received the Stage Special Award for Excellence, the Valery Kashnov International award for his ‘lasting influence on world monodrama’ and a Lifetime achievement Award from the Turkish Ministry of culture for his ‘contribution to World Theatre’. This brand new, moving and affectionate performance is about the devastating effects of Alzheimer's disease, not only on the sufferer but on family, friends and carers. Based on Pip and his brother’s experience of seeing their mum deteriorate with Alzheimer’s disease, and on intensive research and interviews, Pip’s character takes the audience on a journey full of smiles, laughter, respect and tears.
"It’s a richly human story, laced with unexpected humour and a message to seize the day." The Stage
