Caught in this Moment in Time

The Society was pleased to host a performance of “Caught in this Moment of Time” by Ron Coleman during Forfar Gala Week.

The performance was part of a national tour by The Demented Poets Society and visited Forfar for one night only and was thoroughly enjoyed by an responsive audience.

“Caught in this Moment of Time” explores one persons’ attempt to use Alexa (Artificial Intelligence) to retain their autonomy despite having dementia. The play has both very funny and very sad moments and is based on the authors own experience of dementia and technology.

Set in one room, which is the extent of Ron’s world, the piece is interspersed with song poetry and dance that is designed to allow the audience to share Ron’s journey.


In the summer of 2020 the Society released, online, a series of one minute plays. You can find these on our Film Archive page.

In the run up to Christmas 2020, the society produced a radio version of Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol. This script was written by Dickens himself so he could perform it at various events as a one man show. Our version splits the characters between a number of actors and it will be made public once again in the run up to Christmas 2021.
Early in the New Year we worked on two radio scripts. the first, Lifeline, tells the story of how real life experiences can affect staff in a helpline call centre and the second, Mabel’s Day Off is an amusing fantasy adventure. If you missed either you can catch up with them here:
