About the project
In 2016, Before I Leave’s writer Patrick Jones joined forces with National Theatre Wales TEAM, filmmaker Kym Epton, photographer and designer Paul Thomas and musician Ben Tinniswood to teach three choirs of people living with dementia, in Wrexham, Barry (in the Vale of Glamorgan) and Brecon (Powys), to sing Before I Leave, the song Nicky Wire and James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers wrote for the production.
The result was a short film about the experiences of the choirs, which championed the healing power of song.
