“There’s no bullshit with Violet. She’ll say something blunt like, ‘life can be lonely’ and I’ll be like, ‘yeah it can’ and that’s it. Then we just crack on. It’s nice”
Violet is starting to forget, but she's got a long life to remember before she does. There are rights to wrong and ends to tie up; a life well lived is never neat. Generations younger, Bertie is at the beginning with no idea what lies ahead. She's looking for something to point her in the right direction.
From new playwright Bebe Sanders and award-winning company Poor Michelle, Violet is a new play about human connection and inter-generational friendships. It quietly explores themes of mental health, dementia, and loneliness without forgetting the often funny and absurd moments of ordinary life.
"Touching moments... in a way you rarely see on stage"
"I have a particular place in my heart for Poor Michelle's quietly haunting violet"
Lyn Gardner, The Stage
"a quiet but deeply moving story... delicately written and beautifully performed and makes for an enormously satisfying and accessible evening of theatre"
