Tick Tock -  South London Younger Parkinson’s Network
Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s. Because we are here, no one has to face Parkinson’s alone. 1 in 20 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s is under 40. (x)

They’ve become sort of terribly fond on one another, and yet they amuse each other and irritate each other too. So for all those reasons, like friends do, they rub along. They need each other. - Penelope Wilton

And Dame Maggie has a crazy, raunchy lover! A Russian silver fox! Didn’t see that one coming, did we, comrades?

"I wanted to do The House of Bernarda Alba because I read this adaptation. I’ve read others that are very tricky and stilted, but David Hare brings it to life - it’s very of-the-moment. This is his most realistic play, but even so, having read some of the earlier versions, it’s difficult to get right. The wonderful thing about subsidised theatre is that it needs to be cared for. This is not a commercial piece, it needs a longer rehearsal time, and for all those reasons, I wanted to do it here." - Penelope Wilton (‘The House of Bernarda Alba’ at The National Theatre, 2005)
