The New Zealand Premiere of "Let It Be Me", by Carey Jane Hardy, is to be performed at Napier Little Theatre from 1 to 10 July 2010. The play is directed by Anne Corney.

“Amy cares for her Aunt Sylvia who has Alzheimer's. Sylvia does not recognize the adult Amy but instead waits for the child she remembers to come back from school. Amy is loyally devoted to her aunt so finds herself seriously tested when she meets and falls in love with Gregory. With her friends for support, and with Gregory's understanding and tact, Amy begins to see that a different, happier life is possible for her.“

Carey is a qualified nurse, specializing in haematology and oncology. She wrote the play in response to a competition set up by the Lichfield Players, England, to write a play for the new millennium. The suggested theme was “Looking Forward”. Carey wondered how this would be affected by someone who could not look forward and whose memories were slowly being lost. “Let It Be Me” won the competition.

Anne is working very closely with the Napier and New Zealand Alzheimer’s Societies to ensure that the content of the play is treated sensitively and with respect and dignity. The first two weeks of rehearsals will be spent studying the characters of the play and the topic of Alzheimer’s.
