Feed Your Imagination (F.Y.I) 2019 – Don’t Know Don’t Care
- SYNOPSIS -
Don't Know, Don't Care is an interactive theatrical experience that 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', and prefer to leave the caregiving to strangers. Soon, they realise they have to know, and they discover the importance of being there for each other.
Can a time of illness allow a family to finally share a bond and experience joy?
Don’t Know, Don’t Care touches on themes relevant to the students and their lives. This performance includes interaction and discussion with role-play characters through hot-seating and forum theatre to discuss issues with students, empowering them to negotiate change in their lives.
Originally commissioned by HCA Hospice Care in 2012.
