Couldn’t Care Less

Couldn’t Care Less

Strange Theatre and Plutôt la Vie

Elspeth comes and goes, through windows into another world. Her school of dance lies empty. The doctors say it’s Alzheimer’s. Elspeth and her daughter Lilly embark on a journey of frustration, humour and ultimately love as Lilly learns to dance with the person who is, not the mother who was.

Inspired by the experiences of carers, Couldn’t Care Less is a dark, surreal, funny and moving story of two women whose lives are disappearing.

Created by Liz Strange, Tim Licata, Hilde McKenna and Morna Pearson with Alice Wilson, Malcolm Shields and Danny Krass.

Supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland, The Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival, Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival, North Edinburgh Arts and Age Scotland.
