‘I'd always fancied myself as a bit of a Sinatra.
And that song, at a moment like that.
Well, it just doesn't get much more perfect, does it?’
They call it ‘the incident’ now. What happened, when they first met. He always said it was part of his romantic plan, but they both know that’s rubbish.
Join Arthur and Jane, at the beginning, as they tell us their story. Connected by the music of Frank Sinatra, this intimate, humorous and deeply moving love story explores the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and the transformative power of music in our lives.
Brought to life by two actors, we are led through fifty years of Arthur and Jane's relationship, jumping in and out of memories and experiencing, for brief moments, a failing mind as it loses its grip on reality.
In Other Words is proudly presented in partnership with Playlist for Life and The Bath and NE Somerset Dementia Action Alliance.
