An edited trailer of 'Let Me Stay' at the Albany, London 2014. Julie McNamara has worked alongside her mother Shirley to create a wonderfully tender piece of theatre presenting a fresh take on Alzheimer's. Here at last is a portrait of somebody living well with dementia. Forget the idea of any apologetic withdrawal from the world. Rather think of it as a shedding of all cares, with two fingers up at the world and a constant sense of glee.
