Cracked: New light on dementia

Cracked is an innovative research-based theatre production and film that challenges the stigma associated with dementia, inspires alternative ways of thinking about dementia, and encourages everyone to take part in making this a better world for people living with dementia.

Cracked follows two women with dementia and their families, from diagnosis to their new lives in a long-term care home. The families grapple with what the diagnosis means, if and how the diagnosis changes their relationships and their struggle to be with each other in the present.

Cracked is based on research conducted by Drs. Pia Kontos, Sherry Dupuis, Gail Mitchell, and Christine Jonas-Simpson, all of whom are health researchers who specialize in the areas of aging, dementia, and research-based drama. The researchers developed the original play collaboratively with director/playwright Julia Gray, professional actors, people living with dementia, and their families.
