A mystery wrapped in a high-stakes experience of a person with Alzheimer's.

The NM premiere of the play by Florian Zeller, directed by Lee Kitts. Kitts calls the play "a mystery wrapped in a high-stakes hero's journey." The audience will see things (on stage) they haven't seen before. Hopefully they will become involved immediately, experientially, sensually and emotionally." Some viewers believe the play to be the experience of a person with Alzheimer's, but the playwright says he wrote it "as if in a dream." Benefit performance for the Alzheimer's Association on January 20, 2018. All tickets will be $25 and there will be a reception following.
