Take Care follows the story of Pam, a woman struggling to move her mother out of a care home. Along the way we meet around 25 other characters, all involved in the care industry in some way - from politicians, to personal carers. It is a darkly humorous piece of documentary theatre that shines a light on the hidden voices of generations of carers and exposes the workings of a care system in need of repair.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Écoute is an award-winning verbatim theatre company with bases in Bristol and London. We create inventive and challenging pieces of theatre that shine a light on pockets of society that usually go unheard. We search to find the truth behind the news headlines, revealing the stories of people who have become part of the facts and figures. From interviews, news articles and political speeches, we create dynamic, informative and inventive pieces of theatre in a form dissimilar from any other. We pride ourselves in the rigour of our performers and creatives, and the skill at which each production is crafted.
