A Day in the Lives of Frankie Abbott
  • Edinburgh Fringe

After more than 40 years, mummys boy Frankie Abbotts memory is fading while in a care home, still fantasising about guns, girls and gangsters. His carer, Marion, realises how much of a great pretender he was, and discovers what his life may have really been like as she glimpses elements of truth behind the make-believe, and the interaction between her and Frankie brings home with sensitivity the early stages of Alzheimers. This bitter sweet comedy stars David Barry from the original Please Sir! sitcom and West End actress Anita Graham as Marion.
