Why: Dementia and memory issues are often hidden from view. Discovering a loved one is suffering from memory-impairment can be devastating news that family members may not be eager to share. MemoryCare has spent the past 13 years bringing memory-loss issues to the forefront while providing assessment, treatment and support for memory-impaired individuals in our region.
MemoryCare gathered together some of the country's most creative and passionate playwrights for an evening of original one-act plays to highlight dementia issues. The organization sorted through 91 submissions to find three scripts that tell honest and compelling stories about what it's like to love someone with memory loss.
On Saturday, May 4, the top three plays will be performed in front of a live audience. These staged readings mark the premiere of each work, and while the productions will feature limited props and costumes, the emotions will speak volumes. Be a part of this exploration of memory, family and hope while supporting MemoryCare's vital work in the community.
