Seen through the eyes of a man with dementia, The Father exposes the emotional toll it has on him and his family. Moving and at times heart-breaking, André’s story will be recognised by all too many families. Blisteringly honest but ultimately uplifting, it’s a story of our times.

'Psychic’ performances are everywhere these days – with people who claim the ability to communicate with the dead performing everywhere from theatres, to home visits, and on television.
What, however, for those who are interested in the idea of these ‘psychic’ shows, but are skeptics? Or would like to see how much ‘psychic’ phenomena can easily be faked?
That is why magician, escapologist and comedy performer Greg Chapman created his ‘The Non-Psychic ‘Psychic’ Show’, and is very excited to be coming to the Birchmeadow Centre, Broseley with the show!
Using the full range of magic, escapology, mentalism and other performance skills, he takes the audience through a ninety-minute exploration of fraudulent mediums, from the Victorian Seances to modern psychic readings, but all clearly presented as trickery – and without any attempt or illusion of talking to people’s “dead relatives’”.
This show is fun and thought-provoking. Although the show takes no stand on whether it is actually possible to communicate with the dead, it shows how the appearance of such communications can be made through trickery, in a way that is entertaining, interesting, and at times downright funny!
NB: Please note that no refreshments will be served at this performance. Feel free to bring your own, but please no alcoholic beverages.
