When Madam Wong begins her retirement, all she can think of is enjoying her golden years with rest and serenity, surrounded by family and friends. However, rest turns into restlessness as she starts to lose her short-term memory. Her dream of a peaceful life soon becomes a nightmare of remembering and forgetting.
First commissioned by the Alzheimer’s Disease Association, Don’t Forget to Remember Me is a touching and thought-provoking play that deals with the trials and tribulations of people with dementia and their struggles to come to terms with their illness.
In Singapore, about five percent of people above 65 have dementia. It is an illness that causes brain cells to die at a faster rate than normal. This leads to failing memory, deterioration of intellectual function and personality changes. Dementia is not normal ageing.
