LGBTQ+ awareness event for care home staff in South Devon

the purple list

LGBTQ+ Awareness Event

To help care facilities in Torbay and South Devon on their journey to understanding and assisting with staff awareness, Kingsmount Residential Home in partnership with Torbay Council has organised for a theatre troupe to come to The Lucky 7 Club in Paignton on Thursday 9th May 2019 at 2pm to perform The Purple List – a Gay Dementia Venture!

It opens on Sam and Derek’s wedding day and goes on to explore the highs and lows of their lives as Derek’s dementia progresses. Told from Sam’s point of view, the play is a touching, sad, yet often funny, insight into the lives of these two gay men as they navigate their way through the care system and the changes in their personal relationship.

Each Torbay and South Devon care home/ home care provider may book up to 5 FREE tickets for their staff on a first come first served basis by emailing  events@grayareas.co.uk with the following details:
