6:30-8pm

DELTA View

9321 Burns Drive, Delta, BC

604-501-6700
This performance, based largely on conversations Cathie had with her mother, who had dementia, reveals unexpected transformations that were insightful, humorous, and astonishingly poetic. Challenging stigma and stereotypes about dementia, this uplifting and deeply loving portrait is performed as a theatrical reading, with music, dance, and song.  Accompanying Cathie on keyboard is musician Bill Sample, an inductee of The BC Entertainment Hall of Fame.
