Helping Hands

Studio

23 June – 10 July  2.30pm & 7.30pm

By Cathy Forde

Directed by Ben Occhipinti

 

Stage première

Helping Hands tells the story of Rose, an agency support worker, who gives care to the elderly and vulnerable in her community. Hilda is one of those clients. One day when both women find themselves in crisis, a relationship develops that neither woman expected but both desperately needed.

Whilst Rose battles to understand Hilda’s determination to stay at home no matter how physically frail she becomes, Hilda is determined not to allow Rose to take the same path in life as she has, stifled by expectation and compromise. However, whilst the relationship is developing, Hilda is choosing to make a decision that will change everything.  

Premiered on Sound Stage in November 2021, this play is both a moving and celebratory tale of friendship in times of need.

Ticket prices from £16.  Concessions available – call Box Office for more information.

“I am honoured and delighted that my play Helping Hands will be the opening production in the new studio at Pitlochry Festival Theatre in summer 2022.”
