This performance is carefully tailored for people with dementia and their families or carers so that everyone can enjoy the wonder of theatre at Nottingham Playhouse in an environment that is comfortable and supportive.

Here are some of the ways this performance is Dementia Friendly:
• The volume of music will be reduced when dialogue is taking place
• Changing seats during the performance is fine and so is leaving the performance and re-entering
• This is not a schools performance, so the audience will be quieter
• There will be additional signage with pictures in the foyers
• There will be a quiet room before, after and during the show
• There will be more staff on hand to support
• A very relaxed attitude to moving around the theatre and making noise

“You don’t have to stay in the gutter just because you were born there…”
Born Edith Gassion in 1915, no one could have predicted Edith Piaf’s phenomenal rise to fame – from singing in the streets of Paris to becoming one of France’s biggest international stars, her voice is still revered to this day. But her extraordinary talent was matched with an equally extraordinary personal life…
Pam Gems’ sensational and emotionally-charged play explores the highs and lows of the enigmatic yet fragile singer’s life and features some of Piaf’s most famous songs, including La Vie en Rose, Hymne à l’amour and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien.
Piaf is directed by Adam Penford (An Enemy of the People, The Madness of George III, Wonderland) and stars Tony-nominated and Olivier Award-winning actress Jenna Russell in the title role.
