Description

Where the lost and forgotten things of the world end up...

Including Tom


Ambrosia's Bazaar is a place where all of the lost, forgotten, or unfinished things of the world end up. This play follows Tom. Tom is on his way home to his mother, who has early onset dementia, and is to be put in a nursing home paid for by the sale of the family home. Tom has become lost and his mother has forgotten who he is, hence how he finds himself in Ambrosia's Bazaar. Throughout the piece, Ambrosia journeys Tom through his memories that are stored within objects in the shop,bringing him to a point where he comes to terms with his own depression and anxieties around losing his mother and childhood home, whilst making peace with his past.

The core of the play deals with the physical and mental health of an individual who is elderly and losing her memory. Mental health of older age is something that is not addressed enough and I think it is just as important to look at these issues as much as mental health of young people is looked at presently, particularly in theatre.

This play runs at an hour long with no interval.
