‘Crackpot’ part of Normal? Festival of the Brain at the Folkestone Quarterhouse, 22nd May

Crackpot_A5_v3_final We are presenting a new work, Crackpot, at the Quarterhouse in Folkestone on 22nd May, as a part of the larger Normal? Festival of the Brain, co-curated by Susanna Howard from the 21st-24th May.

Crackpot is a funny, bold, insightful theatre show featuring the words of people experiencing dementia and living in care homes in London and Kent.  These words, from people who are often perceived to have lost reason, are mixed with anecdotes from Susanna Howard’s seven years working in care homes in an astonishing and inspiring way.  Some people think she’s a crackpot, then they see the results.
