Jim’s wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He’s determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has dementia. It is a case worthy of the greatest detective mind, but

his will have to do.

Forget Me Not, the Alzheimer’s whodunit is being performed at Rutland County Museum on Friday, next week (April 15) at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 and are available from Oakham Wines or wegottickets.com. Tickets are also available on the door.

Written and performed by Leicester based comic, poet and psychiatric nurse Rob Gee, Forget Me Not is currently touring the UK until September. Following a recent sold-out run across Canada, where it was a critical smash and won several awards.

Rob spent 11 years working as a registered psychiatric nurse around the UK and Australia before becoming a writer and performer. He based Forget Me Not on his experiences as a nurse on a ‘challenging behaviour’ ward for people with late stage dementia.

He said: “It was the last ward to close in this old institution. I always thought it would be a great setting for a murder mystery. I eventually left under a bit of a cloud after reporting some of what I saw. A lot has changed for the better since then, but vulnerable people will always be at risk; and those with the worst memories can sometimes be the most forgotten about.”
