My Life at the Theater: Moonglow


We saw MOONGLOW at the Performance Network Theater in Ann Arbor in 2006. It was the world premiere of Kim Carney's play about her mother's battle with Alzheimers. It softens the blow of this topic by having her the woman strike up a relationship with a man in the Alzheimers Unit, a device also used in the movie AWAY FROM HER.

Kim Carney is a Michigan playwright whose plays have been performed widely and to acclaim. The Performance Network has never let us down with their productions and this was a fine one.

A very tough subject.

Patti - What a sad and difficult topic! But it sounds like a well-done play.
