Let Me Stay is a celebration of life and love as seen through the eyes of Shirley McNamara, Queen of the Mersey.

There will be a Q&A after the show. BSL Interpretation and Audio Description provided. Step-free access to the show.

Alzheimer’s does not have to be a tragic and apologetic withdrawal from life. Think of it as a shedding of all care, with two fingers at the world and a constant sense of glee. It’s a lifestyle choice for some…

A tender and unique exploration of Alzheimer’s on family relations. Julie has recorded her mother’s songs and stories, filmed and photographed over many years.

The result is a compelling piece of theatre, an extraordinary love letter sent straight from the heart, welded with a wicked sense of humour.
