Forget Me Not – The Alzheimer’s Whodunnit

Rob Gee—MTYP – Mainstage

Fringe favorite Mr. Gee is back again to play to his loyal fans. We fell in love with his sizable talent many years ago and have been back every year since. Relying on his experiences of many years working in the healthcare field, he brings us a humorous mystery that takes place in a care unit for Alzheimer’s patients. He is performing his wonderful book of the same title. The tale is told through the voices of the various residents, staff and loved ones; some of whom exit in a decidedly sinister way. Rob’s long, lanky rubber body is perfectly suited to express the tiniest characteristics of the cast of characters. His empathy and understanding of the unfortunate situations Alzheimer’s and old age thrust you into, make you only hope you and yours encounter caregivers with such heart and insight. Yet he manages to show the humour that can be found in this life, if you are open to it. The writing is sublime, which makes for a most enjoyable show. The tale ends with a delicious twist, where the underdog has the last laugh.

An aside, a seniors group in Winnipeg borrowed his play and ran it for three sold out shows and is honouring him with a lunch and video of the production. He is now ‘a proper playwright’ and is thrilled. Buy the book, available after the show, for a great read you can pass on to the mystery lovers in the family. I did. Thanks again Rob!
