Take Off Your Cornflakes

This play smashes through the boundaries of what it means to care


Having played to sell-out audiences across Ireland in 2019 the critically acclaimed Take Off Your Cornflakes, by Rose Henderson and Pat Nolan, receives its UK premiere this summer.

Tom loves a laugh! But it’s no joke when he can’t even remember where he’s parked the car… let alone where he’s left the biscuits. Fortunately, his loving wife Trish comes to the rescue…again!
When Tom is diagnosed with early onset dementia at only 53, life changes dramatically for them both as they navigate the unpredictable years they have left together. Searingly funny without a hint of self-pity, this visceral play about a subject that touches us all smashes through the boundaries of what it means to care and how we truly love…

Mark Lockyer’s moving adaptation of this absurdly normal story poignantly asks us how do we keep dancing when the music between us starts to fade?

White Bear Theatre, 138 Kennington Park Road SE11 4DJ from 2nd – 12th June. Times: Mon – Sat 7pm; Sat matinee 2pm. Admission: £16, £12 (concessions).
