In a bizarre neurological twist, Mrs O’Connor’s stroke transports her from a bland life in a pensioner’s home to the magical world of her memories. Life as she knows it is changed completely, and a secret from her past is finally unearthed. Inspired by a case study by world-renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks, Reminiscence is a work of total theatre comprising original live music, text, theatre and visuals.
