Finding Joy

Finding Joy is being brought to the stage by full mask company Vamos Theatre on October 26 and 27.

The show has been performed across Europe, including a successful run at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

A spokesperson said: “Finding Joy is based on the true-life story of Danny, an 18-year-old boy, who looked after his grandmother, as she made her way through middle and late stage dementia.

“Danny’s methods were unorthodox, but he was a natural carer and looked after her with an inspiring freshness and positivity and always with total respect for her changing reality.”
