Emma Decent presents

I Don’t Know What I’m Supposed to be Doing

Sat 21 Oct, 4:00pm at Halifax Central Library

Tickets: £5

‘I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing’ was something Emma’s Mum said repeatedly in the early days of her dementia. Over 10 years later, now her mother has died, Emma finds herself asking the question for herself. Emma’s Mum was a librarian, Emma is a library assistant. Especially created for libraries, this new show goes on a journey through time, mother-daughter love and re-evaluation. A funny, moving, inspiring tale using poetry, theatre – and library books.

‘Very powerful performance. Loved the mixture of visual photos, music, props and story-telling.’

‘A wonderfully thoughtful, life-affirming, therapeutic, caring and compassionate portrayal of lives.’

Join us for a series of storytelling events at Halifax Central Library on Saturday afternoons throughout October. Explore the idea of home and connection through a celebration of stories, language, love and library books.
