Peninsula Productions is delighted to be presenting a staged reading of the heartbreakingly beautiful play The Father by Florian Zeller. Featuring Hamish Cameron, Robyn Bradley, Sam Weller, Rebekah MacEwan, Gordon Law and Kelly Thompson.

Now 80 years old, André was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter, Anne, and her husband, Antoine. Or was André an engineer, whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control.

Director Alan Brodie is thrilled to be working once again with Peninsula Productions, where last summer he created the set, lighting and projection designs for Sea of Stories. In the capacity of director, Brodie continues to expand the scope of his lengthy career as a theatre maker.

He is impressed by how Peninsula Productions continues to build upon prior successes, growing its audience and expanding its reputation beyond the community of White Rock.

About The Father, he says, "I am honored to have been asked to direct this beautiful play by Florian Zeller. The story of André and his family is one that will resonate with us all. It is a humorous and touching portrayal of life, mortality, loss and the ties that bind families."

WORKSHOP HELPS WHITE ROCK CAREGIVERS REDUCE PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL TOLL

An increasing number of White Rock residents are finding themselves caring for a family member.

The reason? Dementia, the medical term for a set of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain.

"The physical and psychological toll on family caregivers is considerable," says Avalon Tournier, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Support & Education Coordinator for White Rock and the South Fraser region.

Knowing the signs of caregiver stress and finding ways to get support are important for both families and those for whom they are caring. To help families on the dementia journey, the Society brings its free Family Caregiver Series workshop to White Rock for four Wednesday sessions starting on February 14.

Participants will learn strategies for taking care of someone with dementia, as well as taking care of their own health to ensure they are prepared to continue providing care for their family members. "We offer practical techniques and strategies that caregivers can begin using immediately," Tournier says.

Topics to be covered include:

*Understanding Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

*Effective and creative ways of facilitating communication with a person with dementia.

*Understanding behaviour as a form of communication.

*Self-care for the caregiver.

*Planning for the future.

The workshops run February 14 through March 7 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at White Rock Resource Centre, 1475 Anderson Street. Pre-registration is required by contacting 604-449-5000 or info.southfraser@alzheimerbc.org.
