Too Old To Care

Research and Development

Autumn 2020 – Spring 2021

Having worked in a care home, Christina has long been captivated by this world of extraordinary individuals and their forgotten stories. They are places of such comedy and tragedy, where jokes of lost false teeth sit alongside painful goodbyes. Covid-19 has made exploring the humanity behind the headlines more important now than ever.

Through the support of Arts Council England, Christina is writing a new play based on the stories and experiences of residents, relatives and staff. Early in 2021, she will be heading into a rehearsal room to explore the script with actors and a director.

If you are a care home resident, relative or staff member and would like to be interviewed as part of the project, or if you’d just like to find out a bit more, please get in touch.
