The Remember Project March 8th, 3-5pm

The Remember Project “In the Garden”, Wednesday, March 8th, 3-5pm. “In the Garden” is the 3rd in our 3-part dementia awareness events. This final virtual play presents the story of Arthur Monsetin’s adult children who have come together to decide a course of action for their beloved father who is struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. 

Long ingrained familial tensions come to the surface as Peter, Karen and Jamie wrestle with how best to treasure their father as they also come to terms with his limitations.
