The award-winning, touring show The Keys are in the Margarine offers a riveting array of Kiwi characters portrayed with that special sense of authenticity only verbatim theatre can manifest.
This play is created from interviews with people who have direct experience of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia conditions – caregivers, family members, doctors and the people themselves. Their stories communicate the all-encompassing effect dementia has on their lives and everyone around them.
In the performance the four actors re-present the edited testimony from 17 people as precisely as possible. With the original voices playing in their ears the actors relay the original words spoken (every vocal inflection, intonation and hesitation) as well as replicating the physical gestures and facial expressions that originally accompanied the words. The result is compelling, informative and stunning theatre.
