The Other Place opens just as a key study in the Netherlands announces that by the age of 45, 25% of women are at risk of developing dementia. Pretty shocking number and this play, from American writer Sharr White, zooms in on one woman’s whose life and reality is shocked into disarray itself when she begins to develop the condition. It’s an emotional and harrowing account brought to fore by a robust performance from Karen Archer, who you might recognise from el telly. The piece brings to life the pain and audacity of a disease which is the leading cause of death in UK women today. It does manage to hold onto a flicker of lightness with some very smart humour in the writing and a sharp tongued protagonist. Open until 20th October, you can book tickets here.
