Canoe needs you! Help us fill in the blanks…

This autumn Canoe Theatre and Theatrau Sir Gâr will present a new touring Dementia Friendly production of This Incredible Life by Alan Harris and we need your help.


To make the production more relevant to local audiences, the play will be rewritten to include local references to spark memories and recognition.


That’s where you come in!


We’re touring to Llanelli, Merthyr, Aberystwyth, Abertillery, Cardiff, Conwy, Bangor and Blackwood and we’re looking for the following local tips:

  • A street that has Mock Tudor fronted houses

  • A local newspaper in the 1970s

  • A plush hotel you would have a wedding reception in

  • A Local pub in the 1960s

  • A nightclub/late bar in the 1960s

  • Somewhere you would have a wake in the 1970s

  • A furniture shop in the 1960s/70s

  • A department store in the 1960s/70s

  • An area with farms locally

We’re also looking for local photographs from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s to display at venues as a way to enhance the world of the play.


Can you help? Get in touch – you can comment on our blog (below), email us or contact us on Twitter or Facebook. We can’t wait to hear from you!
