About This Show

In Ancient Greece, older people were highly respected. In Egypt, old age was a marker of wisdom. Today, in the UK, care for older family members is often outsourced. But the care system is breaking at the seams. If You Fall tells the deeply human stories of older people, their families and carers struggling to approach end of life care with dignity. Margaret is a nationally-revered academic. Norson is a brilliant cook. He loves cricket and fishing. She loves singing and her lavender plants. They’re both surrounded by loving families. Their lives are full… So what happens when you lose your independence, your voice, your mind – the essence of what makes you, you?

Multi-award-winning Ad Infinitum brings you a moving, humorous and sensitive story based on real-life personal testimonies, full of acapella singing, their signature style of physical theatre, and an intergenerational ensemble exploring older people’s care in all its complexities.
