BWPJC Event March 18th

‘Mum Thumb’, a play with music, by Judith SilverOn Saturday March 18th at 1.30pm at the synagogue we’ll be hosting an in-person and online showing of a recorded performance of this play. The showing will be followed by discussion with the playwright/composer.Free for synagogue members, £5 for non-members. All attendees need to book a ticket here: If you’re coming to the service in the morning – at which Judith will be singing and playing too – we’ll be having a light (finger-food) bring and share lunch between the end of the service and 1.30pm. ‘Mum Thumb’ is based on some of the lived experiences of the author and her mother. It flashes back to their earlier lives as well as focusing on the latter parts of the mother’s life, including her journey through vascular dementia. The play is a lesson in kindness, patience and solidarity, exploring the impact of dementia and death on relationships. It also contains a surprising amount of fun and joy along with beautiful songs.We will watch a recording of a live performance of the play and then spend some time together reflecting on the play, in conversation with the writer and sharing some of our own experiences if we wish. All are welcome, with awareness that the sensitive subjects of dementia and end of life will be addressed.If you’d like to learn more about the play, please visit our website, and Judith’s own website
