Silva Lining’s Care Plan, a podcast audio drama made by 2BU Productions and written by Elspeth Penny is now out!
It’s free and ready to listen to: the story centres on Silva, a retired neurosurgeon who has dementia but has invented something extraordinary – a very special organoid. Meet Brain, growing in a petri dish and fast developing a mind of its own…..
A chaotic organoid brain gets the better of a carer and its creator, a woman with dementia, in this podcast drama informed by the personal experience of home carers of people with dementia.
Written by Elspeth Penny, starring Melissa Johns, Shappi Khorsandi, Cyril Nri and Marlene Sidaway, with music from Sarah Moody.
The play is based on research into dementia carers, led by Professor Justine Schneider with advice from Principal Research Fellow Dons Coleston-Shields whose specialism is neuropsychology of dementia.
