THE 16TH INTERNATIONAL KENNETH BRANAGH AWARD FOR NEW DRAMA WRITING
I am delighted to sponsor this writing award and to be a small part of the Windsor Fringe initiative that supports new writers. Without a good play or script, the best actors and directors in the world cannot hope to produce good work and I welcome the encouragement that this award offers to writers, both local and international.

This is a semi-autobiographical play that explores the complex relationship between mothers and daughters within the context of living with Alzheimer's Disease. It looks at the challenges faced, the relentlessness & unpredictability of the illness but also the bizarre and comic moments that are an inevitable part of the process.
