Don’t Know, Don’t Care presented by The Necessary Stage and commissioned by HCA Hospice Care looks at a family trying to deal with terminal illness within the household. Wrapped up in their own lives, the family members 'don't want to know'. They prefer to leave the caregiving to strangers.
Soon, they realise they have to know; they learn how to care. They discover the importance of being there for each other. At a time of illness, they can finally share a bond and experience joy.
Don't Know, Don't Care was presented at secondary schools from 25 June to 6 July 2012. It was restaged in May 2013, July 2013 and July 2014. The play has also been adapted for the screen.
