Retired police detective Jim’s wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died... but Jim smells a rat. He wants to solve one last murder but he also has dementia. It’s a case for the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do.

At the heart of Forget Me Not is a detective whose tool of the trade - his mind - is failing him, making the most important case of his life something of a challenge to solve. Hilarious and thought-provoking, this is a one-man comedy poetry theatre show that has a lot to say about how we treat and perceive people with dementia. So much so that, since seeing the show, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust have recruited Rob to work with healthcare staff, using Forget Me Not as a training aid in the areas of compassion and whistleblowing.

Really good, one of the best shows I have seen in a long while, very thought provoking and I bought the CD and Book as a gift afterwards. One small fly in the ointment that the time on the tickets was wrong again (7:30-8:30 for a show with an interval) and Design My Night decided that the nearest station to East Croydon was Clapham Junction.

Excellent piece of writing portraying the dehumanising of patients with this horrendous condition. Both funny, sad and sometimes uncomfortable viewing. Very, very clever. An absolute must see, especially if the viewer is in the caring profession!! Sue visited The Spread Eagle Pub & Theatre on 03 Dec 2016
