The team behind a new play exploring loneliness and friendship, which opened in London last week, has joined forces with Contact the Elderly to raise awareness of older people suffering from social isolation.
The play, Violet, written by Bebe Sanders, explores themes of mental health, loneliness and the intergenerational age gap through the eyes of millennial Bertie, who has recently befriended an older woman suffering from Dementia.
Violet Director Ellie Gauge said, “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Contact the Elderly to help spread the message that older people are a vital part of our communities and shouldn’t ever be overlooked. We hope it will continue, as it did in Edinburgh, to encourage audiences to reconnect with older people in their own lives and reach out and find new unexpected friendships”
The play is showing at The Bunker from today, 4th December, to 15th December. If you would like to book tickets please visit the venue’s website and use the code VIOLET10 to receive 10 percent off your booking.
