William Kite Has Memory Issues
Edinburgh Fringe
12-17 August 2024

Though dementia is increasingly common in an ageing population, it remains an unknown quantity to many.

This drama, based on the writer’s experience of seeking support for someone with early-onset Alzheimer's, features the frustrations and difficulties encountered on the journey from initial symptoms to eventual diagnosis.

It explores gentle William’s interactions with interested parties – GP, fraudster, social worker, etc. – as he faces his changing reality.   

The play aims to provide an entertaining, thought-provoking, occasionally humorous audience experience in its depiction of the impact of encroaching dementia on an intelligent, independent individual.
