“The Other Place” by Sharr White. This contemporary play got Laurie Metcalf (remember her from the “Rosanne” TV show?) a Tony nomination during its Broadway run in 2013. The Broadway cast also included Daniel Stern (remember “Home Alone”?) .
Juliana Smithton has invented a drug that is in final clinical trials and may be able to arrest the progression of dementia. As she tells us, the drug will never be able to bring back memories that are lost because the brain cells that held those memories are gone. But if successful, the drug will stop the progression of the disease.
While her professional life is progressing, her personal life is in trouble starting with a daughter who ran away from home ten years ago and issues relating to her own health.
This drama stars Aaimee Johnson as Juliana, Kevin Doyle as her husband, Ian, and Bethany Moreradiant and Travis Baker.
If you are looking for a great story, well told, you don’t want to miss this play. “The Other Place” opens Friday, September 8th and runs for three weekends. Language and subject matter may make this play unsuitable for pre-teens.
