Descent @ The Gilded Balloon Edinburgh Fringe

Nominated BEST NEW PLAY, CATS AWARDS 2016; Descent, written by Linda McLaughlin now comes to the Edinburgh Festival at the Gilded Balloon, Rose Theatre, from 4 – 20 August (except 18th August).


“If you love someone you stick by them, no matter what happens. Because that’s the deal. Isn’t it?” 50-somethings Rob and Cathy are reclaiming their own lives now that daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled; but looming over them is a threat that could rip their future apart. Descent explores what happens as they fight with courage, hope and humanity to hold on to each other – and themselves – in the face of early onset dementia.
