From the Fringe program:

What's the difference between dying "properly" and dying with Alzheimer's? Dying while loved or...?

Does death require the bereaved to exclaim: 91 is too young to die! Does Alzheimer's demand forgetting them before they forget you? Using humour and horror, this new one-man show tells how Gerald and husband tended the final five years of nonagenarian parents.

Describing their individual shuffling off, this funny, poignant and thoughtful reflection offers an understanding on life, roles as children and expectations met or missed.

Show Length: 60 minutes
Suggested Audience: General
Warnings: The performance discusses the death of parents and has a passing reference to suicide.
