Over the Garden Fence follows the story of Annabelle and her Gran Dolly.
Annabelle and the audience are taken on a nostalgic journey through Gran’s life, sharing memories of happiness, sorrow and joy. It is a fast paced, uplifting and comical exploration into family, life and relationships that promotes an awareness of dementia that is accessible to all. The stories within the play are personal.
Haylo Theatre have already had experience of working with schools, charities, communities, nurses (hospitals) care homes, people with dementia, families and several conferences, both locally and nationally. They speak from personal experience, and the experiences people have shared with them.
Over the Garden Fence is written and performed by Louise Evans and Hayley Riley
