Forgotten Panopticon -  28.8.2010

........ to peek behind the character so often seen lost and vacant-faced amid festival crowds, to hear from the strong personality still fighting against his trials, still living. How wonderful, and how awful, that the ember is trapped within and slowly going out. This evening will stay with me.

Audience comments from Fringe productions.

I saw the show last weekend and was moved to tears several times , the portrayal of dementia was done with such care, honesty, dignity and humour. A wonderful performance and well worth going to see even if the title could be slightly off putting for some. Thanks again.

I just saw this at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh and was absolutely floored. This man's timing, mannerisms, and delivery were absolutely gorgeous. At the end of the show, I was so moved that I just wanted to sit in my seat and digest everything that had just been presented. I was lucky enough to see Mr. Smith on the Mile afterwards and was able to say how brilliant that I thought his show was. If you don't go and see this show, you are truly missing out on a great piece of theatre.

Fantastic play which is a poignant account of a man suffering from dementia. Humourous insight into the mind of a man with dementia which will touch your heart. Anyone who knows someone who has dementia will really appreciate this fantastic actor.
