There is a lot of Alzheimer’s in theatre at the moment, what with Deirdre Kinahan’s collaboration with Bryan Murray in the Peacock (An Old Song, Half Forgotten), and this gentle portrait of a man losing his mental grip playing in Bewley’s Café Theatre. Take Off Your Cornflakes was first presented in the Dublin Fringe in 2017, created under the Show in a Bag scheme led by Fishamble.
