Inspired by the work of theatre director Tadeusz Kantor, recent neurobiological research and interviews with people living with dementia, The Nature of Forgetting is a powerful, haunting and beautiful theatre piece about the inability to recollect a life and what is left when memory is gone…

Thornton Wilder - In Our Town
