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. Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease – its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.
Starring Sharon Small with a spellbinding performance as Alice, this tender and touching play is written by Lisa Genova and adapted by Christine Mary Dunford. Previously adapted into the award-winning film starring Julianne Moore, it is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.
