An Evening with Dementia (theSpace on the Mile)
“What do you see, nurses, what do you see? monavie un viagra vegetal
Are you thinking when you are looking at me –
A crabbit old woman, not very wise,
Uncertain of habit with far away eyes,
Who dribbles her food and makes no reply,
When you say in a loud voice, “I do wish you’d try”.
I’ll tell you who I am, as I sit here so still,
As I rise at your bidding, as I eat at your will.
I’m a child of ten with a father and mother,
With brothers and sisters who love one another,
A bride soon at twenty, my heart gives a leap
Remembering the vows I promised to keep:
At twenty-five now I have young of my own,
Who need me to build a secure happy home.
At fifty once more babies play round my knee,
Again we know children, my loved one and me.
Dark days upon me, my husband is dead,
My young are all busy rearing young of their own
And I think of the years and the love I have known.
I’m an old woman now and nature is cruel.
‘Tis her jest to make old age look like a fool,
The body it crumbles, grace and vigour depart,
There is now a stone where once was a heart,
But inside this old carcass a young girl still dwells cialis pills online
I remember the joys, I remember the pains,
And I’m loving the living all over again,
And I think of the years all too few – gone too fast
And accept the stark fact that nothing will last.
So open your eyes, nurses, open and see
Not a crabbit old woman, look close – and see me.”
This poem was written by an elderly woman, in a hospital and found in her locker after she died, and inspired Trevor Smith to write and perform this show. RSC actor and playwright Trevor Smith welcomes you into a journey in the mind of an old actor casted away from society because of his fading memory. cialis 5 mg acquisto line how to get rid of an erection caused by viagra
Tim Renkow: At Least Hell Has Ramps (Heroes @ The Hive)
This is another show of Tim Renkow raised in America that moved to London in the pursuit of a comedy carer and he has Cerebral Palsy. He has been performed at the Edinburgh’s Fringe for the last 2 years now. In this 40 min show Tim Renkow shares some personal stories about his condition, love life, etc all complimented by his very sharp sense of humour. His show isn’t all about his condition; he talks about some delicate subjects in a witty, honest and deftly way. Kate Copstick, gives us a review that pretty much will make you run to buy a ticket: “We get anecdotes from his life that are at once appalling and hilarious, we get politics, history, religion and homophobia. The material on the last subject culminates in absolutely the best little routine I have heard on the much discussed subject of gays and religion. It is a perfect little payoff to some material he had done earlier in the show. You will be genuinely shocked at some of his material but Renkow is an engaging performer, all sparkling eyes and enormous smile, so when he takes someone down or kicks the comedy doodoo out of some serious subjects it is all done with an engaging and glorious glee. He is also the master of delicious understatement. “Land is not my forte” he starts one routine, grinning.”
We are sorry we were late to post about this show but we would like to make an honourable mention and we definitely suggest you go watch it if you get the chance.
About Backstage In Biscuit Land (Pleasance Courtyard)
This is a brand new show for Fringe, brought to us by Jess Thom that has Tourettes, this condition makes her say the word “biscuit” 16,000 times a day. Her condition gives her a very different perspective on life and that’s what this two-woman show is all about. Comedy, puppetry, singing, tics, spontaneity, creativity and disability in a show that will make you laugh at the least probable things. This show is never the same since Jess’s condition makes her incapable to stay on script and that’s only half of the fun. The show was crowd funded via kickstarter and received an amazing amount of support and because of this was able to take part in the Edinburgh’s Fringe.
