These three extraordinary plays capture the pain and the joy, the confusion and the clarity, and the challenges and rewards of living with Alzheimer's disease and caring for someone you love who has the illness. For those who do not know the illness, they are a wonderful illustration of the ups and downs faced by those who do. By neither shying away from the difficulties nor glamorizing the humor and love that maintains patients and those supporting them, these playwrights capture the multiplicity of experiences and emotions of those living with Alzheimer disease.
