Banana Crabtree Simon is a one man play written by renowned snooker commentator David Hendon, a finalist in the Kenneth Branagh Drama Writing Awards. This challenging piece explores one man’s struggle with early onset dementia and the way it effects those around him.

Directed by Dan Phillips and starring CJ de Mooi this promises to be an emotional and honest piece of theatre, based on a subject that touches so many lives.
