Tremolo is a podcast drama produced by Illumine Theatre in partnership with Wales Gene Park and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, supported by the Genetics Society. It tells the story of Harri - an 18 year old with his whole life ahead of him, only to discover his mother has been diagnosed with early onset familial Alzheimer's and that both he and his sister Gwenllian each have a 50 per cent chance of inheriting the disease.  Should he take a test to find out? 

Aimed primarily at audiences aged 16+, but available to everyone, Tremolo is available to listen to and download via platforms including Spotify, iTunes and AM. The drama is available in English and Welsh.
