Bothered and Bewildered

20 November 2019 - 7:30pm - 23 November 2019 - 7:30pm

Compton Players’ next production is Bothered and Bewildered by Gail Young. It’s a comedy drama about one woman’s struggle with Alzheimer’s.

The play follows Irene and her two daughters Louise and Beth as the girls lose their mum in spirit but not in body. As her family struggle to come to terms with her Alzheimer’s, Irene’s past passion for romantic literature blurs with reality. She spends hours discussing how best to write her ‘memory book’ with her imaginary friend, disclosing long kept family secrets that she would never divulge to her daughters.

This tragi-comedy is about memory, loss, secrets and, above all, love.

The production is at Compton Village Hall, RG20 6NP, from Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd November at 19:30. You can book seats online at
