Alzheimer’s is topping many national conversations following this year’s Oscars: Best Actress to Julianne Moore for poignantly portraying a wife and mother with dementia and a nomination for Glenn Campell’s heart-rending song about living with Alzheimer’s, the last song he’ll ever record.
Now Seattle brings this conversation home with two evenings of award-winning drama: The MemoryCare Plays on May 8 & 9 at Taproot’s Isaac Studio Theatre. Dr. Soo Borson, Professor Emerita at the University of Washington School of Medicine and a dementia specialist, will facilitate a post-play conversation with the audience to educate and bring emotional connection to the realities associated with memory loss.
All proceeds from the fundraiser and ticket sales go towards hiring teaching artists to bring arts programs to organizations serving individuals with memory loss and their caregivers. This is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Full Life Care, Careforce, Aegis Living, Alzheimer’s Association, and Merrill Gardens at First Hill.
May 8, Opening Night:
- $100 – Benefactors, includes a preshow reception and a signed book by local author, Esther Altshul Helfgott.
- $50 – Patrons, includes a preshow reception.
See May 9 for $25 general and $15 student/senior tickets.
