Alzheimer’s play OLD FOOLS to open at Southwark Playhouse

Old Fools, Tristan Bernays’ first play in London since the storming success of Boudica at The Globe, will get its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse from Wednesday 14 March – Saturday 7 April 2018.

Tristan Bernays’ 1950s musical Teddy also premiered at Southwark Playhouse and won Best New Musical at the Off West End Awards 2016.

Old Fools is the story of Tom and Viv, their love and the life they’ve shared together – from first spark to dying light. But not necessarily in that order.

Directed by Sharon Burrell, it is a surprising and touching tale about a couple, one of whom is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and their enduring efforts to hold their relationship together through the years.

Cast to be announced.
