It’s ‘All Change’, but Ivor’s Not Going Quietly

See the trailer here.

Ivor waits, his train of thought broken by his fragmented and decaying memory.  His daughter Lily packs a bag, preparing him for life in a “home”. But change is never easy and Ivor’s not going quietly. As fast as Lily packs, he unpacks…Crossed wires and changing tracks lead to confusion and hilarious misunderstandings multiply in a nostalgic comedy that is “impeccably judged, a fine performance of a brutally insightful script” (Fringe Guru)

"An excellent play" ***** Fringe Review
"Funny, sad, touching and provocative" ***** Lynfa
"Poignant and moving" **** Reviews Hub
“Find time to see the play, then find time for those you care about” **** Fringe Guru

Performed by sitcom veteran Tim Marriott (BBCTV’s The Brittas Empire), with Adelaide’s rising star Stefanie Rossi (STARC Productions: Reasonable Doubt, Two, Toyer) as Lily, All Change is a tale for our times, addressing the issues of failing memory and caring for an aging parent whilst battling our own personal challenges.

Tim Marriott says: “Hundreds of thousands of families are affected by dementia every year. It has an immense impact on the lives of everyone it touches and as time ticks on it’s something that any of us might eventually suffer”, whilst Stefanie Rossi is keen to point out the humour in the piece and adds: “The personal tragedy of dementia is at the heart of All Change, it’s very much a play filled with humanity, warmth and humour.”

All Change is inspired by the work of St Wilfrid’s Hospice and scripted by TH Marriott. Based on close family experience, the play premiered at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe and, following excellent notices, has been revised and extended for Adelaide Fringe 2019.

ALL CHANGE SUPPORTS DEMENTIA AUSTRALIA, raising awareness and arranging post show collections.
