Steering into the Skid

Steering into the Skid

Tuesday, June 6 from 11:00 am - 1:30 pm at WITC

Come join us for lunch and the play. This event is FREE of charge.

Steering into the Skid, was published in The MemoryCare Plays, a book of three one-act plays compiled and edited by Dr. Margaret A. Noel. In 12 short scenes, one per month-starting on New Year's Eve- and all taking place in the couple's SUV, the audience comes to know Tim and Amanda and bear witness to the early progression of dementia. As the months pass, the audience sees the subtle changes and adjustments this loving couple is forced to deal with due to memory loss.
