Ivory Wings is a one woman show, with a live piano score. It explores Alzheimer’s and the therapeutic effects of music on patients’ memory, whilst celebrating the remarkable women of the Air Transport Auxiliary whose job was to deliver wartime aircraft from the factories to the RAF bases during World War Two.
Throughout the play, Virginia drifts between her elderly Alzheimer’s state and her twenty eight year old self, looking back at her time flying Spitfires and Hurricanes, her memories triggered by music.
After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Coreth Arts are proud to bring this new play to the Drayton Arms Theatre for its London debut.
Theatre Company Reviews:
The Scotsman, ****
"An acting masterclass which must surely be one of the great embodiments of mortality at this year’s festival"
"Manages something which few pieces about dementia share: a sense of hope, that one snatched memory triggered by a piece of music might reaffirm a life anew"
Scottish Field, ****
"A very good script, acted with skill and accompanied by a talented pianist. Go see for yourself"
