Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and draw on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible.
Alice strives to remain true to the woman she has always been, while relationships shift within her family, in her work and most importantly with herself.
Starring Sharon Small with a spellbinding performance as Alice, this tender and touching play is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.
Sharon is joined on stage by Eva Pope, Martin Marquez, Mark Armstrong, Ruth Ollman, Micah Balfour and Anna Andresen.
Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease: its conflicts, its burden, and its small, priceless victories.
