Past Performances

Host a Performance

This anthology was commissioned specifically to create awareness about dementia and to help fund care for those affected by memory loss through the performance of its plays and sale of the playbook itself. We invite you to contact the playwrights (through MemoryCare) for permission to use this remarkable set of plays in any way you choose to further these two goals.

Whether read or performed, the plays will increase the public’s understanding of dementia. The anthology includes discussion questions for book groups, benefit performances, educational outreach, and support groups.

Instructions for Utilizing These Plays

The playwrights of these three one act plays have the authority to grant organizations dedicated to dementia care a license to perform the approved version of their plays, in whole or in part, at any educational, advocacy or fundraising event at their discretion.

In all printed, published and licensed performances of the approved work, whole or part, the playwright must be credited as well as the published source, The MemoryCare Plays edited by Margaret A. Noel, MD. Any person or entity requesting to perform these plays will be referred directly to the playwright. Bulk rate pricing is available for purchasing copies of the play anthology.

Contact MemoryCare for additional information (education@memorycare.org).

“It is a gracious way to raise consciousness about this issue of memory loss–people will respond to these plays in very positive ways. Art can sometimes reach people when science cannot.” — C. Robert Jones, Professor emeritus, Mars Hill University
