It’s a new play by Sam Post.
Justin Dionne is directing.
Performance will be in the black box theatre at The Looking Glass Artist Collective, October 19-22, at 7:30 pm.
Poochie is about a family dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease. As we see Edna forget her life, Ruth learns to manage the person she’s becoming without the memories she and her mother have shared.
Her challenges caring for her mother are now showing up in her other primary life relationships — those with her husband, daughter, brother, and dog.
After the shows, for those who want to stay and participate in the conversation, an expert on Alzheimer’s Disease will facilitate a talk back about what families are dealing with and what resources are available to them.
