Production synopsis Alice Howland is a university professor at the height of her career. Fiercely independent, with a husband and two children, Alice seeks to make sense of her changing world as her memory begins to fail. 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 by Lisa Genova truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease – its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.
A powerful and poignant play, it is both heart-breaking and hopeful.
