Inspired by the experiences of carers “Couldn’t Care Less” is a dark, surreal, funny and moving story of two women whose lives are disappearing. When Elspeth develops Alzheimer’s, Lilly embarks on a journey of frustration, humour and ultimately love, as she learns to dance with the person who is, not the mother who was.


Strange Theatre is co-producing the play with Plutôt la Vie and we are performing the play as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and Luminate: Scotland’s Creative Ageing Festival. The play is funded by Creative Scotland and Age Scotland and is being created collaboratively by performers Liz Strange and Hilde McKenna, director Tim Licata, writer Morna Pearson, composer Daniel Krass, with designer Alice Wilson and choreographer Malcolm Shields.
