Let Me Stay

Performed on Thu 5 Jun


A tender and unique exploration of the impact of Alzheimer's on family relations.

Presented by Vital Xposure.

Julie McNamara has recorded her Mother's songs and stories, filmed and photographed her in all her glory, over many years. The result is a compelling piece of theatre, an extraordinary love letter straight from the heart, welded with a wicked underlying humour.

Let Me Stay is a celebration of life and love as seen through the eyes of Shirley McNamara, Queen of the Mersea. Alzheimer's does not have to be a tragic and apologetic withdrawal from life. Think of it as a shedding of all care, with two fingers at the world and a constant sense of glee. It's a lifestyle choice for some...

The story paints an exquisite picture of life in Liverpool during the sixties and seventies, reflecting cultural and historical changes in the city and the impact on family life.
