About

Rita is really confused.

She can't understand why the deaf education system she's tirelessly championed throughout her teaching career is getting worse and worse, or why there is only one care home in the whole of England that looks after people in her language. On the Isle of Wight.

She's also confused about where her family is, and why she can't remember where the milk goes…

This striking world premiere, made in association with acclaimed British theatre company Deafinitely Theatre (The Vagina Monologues, Everyday and 4.48 Psychosis), is inspired by the extraordinary experiences of deaf people living with dementia, and is directed in the company's renowned highly visual style combining British Sign Language and English.
