Summary

I do not accept there is anything wrong with me.

Days before her wedding Megan discovers she has a 50-50 chance of developing early onset Alzheimer’s. Years later she’s offered a genetic test. But if she’s got the gene does she really want to know?

Megan, 21. Megan, 47. Megan, 32. Megan, 27.

One woman lurches through time while her young family deal with the consequences.

I can’t think. But I still feel. And most of the time I feel scared. Scared because it’s too soon. I haven’t finished yet.

Plaques and Tangles by Nicola Wilson premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in October 2015.

Critic Reviews

A debut of extraordinary structural flair and adroitly devastating emotional power... A terrific feat of imagination and vividly marshalled fact.

Paul Taylor, Independent
Critic Reviews

Nicola Wilson has written a work of quietly devastating power... Beautifully imagined.

Aleks Sierz, The Arts Desk
Critic Reviews

Remarkably accomplished.

Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph
Critic Reviews

Like a standard family drama that's been blown to smithereens and reassembled from the smouldering shards.

Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out
