Short Memory 

By Richard Roques


A rehearsed reading of a new play by Richard Roques with live music.

Hedge fund manager Gerald is shorting shares in drug companies. His father has Alzheimer’s.
As King George the Second stood in 1743 for the Hallelujah chorus of Handel’s Messiah, Adam in 2018, with advanced Alzheimer’s, stands and sings.

Nancy:  Google my husband? Why would I google my own husband?
Gerald: Well you’ve been busy googling hedge funds Mum.


Richard’s last play was `Whistleblower - the story of Edward Snowden.’
`Whistleblower is always watchable. Events unfold with a
thriller-like momentum…’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian July 2014
