About The Performances
'Take Care' lifts the lid on how the elderly care system is currently operated, following stories from a huge variety of people - from personal carers to NHS Health Officials.
Based purely on interviews conducted around the country, 'Take Care' is a humorous and touching verbatim production that tackles the fact that we are an ageing population, acknowledges that the healthcare system is currently at a point of crisis, and ask the question - what can we do to change things for the better?
Rachel has lost her hero. Her uncle Neil has died unexpectedly. In the wake of his death she becomes reclusive, struggling to leave the house. To make sense of her loss she travels back in time and revisits the incredible stories Neil told her as a child, of adventures around the world. This autobiographical show is an honest, often comical exploration of grief and the power of storytelling. Wolf Tamer sheds a new light on the darkest times in our lives and is ultimately a story of courage and survival.
