Deaf Steve Presents
By Steve Day
Price: From £10
Steve’s dad has Alzheimer’s. There’s nothing he can do about it except remember the way his dad was. Steve has been deaf since his teens but has new hearing aids so now he’s gone through all the music of his youth. It reminds him of his dad.
There’s nothing else for it but to defy dementia, with music, songs and laughter. Laugh, cry, sing along if you want. If you like bittersweet comedy about deafness and memory loss then this is the show for you.
"Steve’s memories are necessarily bitter-sweet, but the show can be taken as showing two fingers to dementia, defying the disease’s definition of his father to replacing it with his own – a three-dimensional portrait of a real man, warts and all, but loved and loving."
‘Some shows move you, some shows make you laugh, rare shows manage both – and occasionally, as with this, both in the same sentences...’
