Does life imitate art, or vice versa? Ava Roy and Courtney Walsh are members of We Players, a San Francisco based theater group. I talk with them about this, and more, in today’s episode. The play, Mother Lear uses the words of Shakespeare in this 2 actor production about a professional woman with dementia, and her daughter.
This one act play, both intimate and personal, transitions to an interactive Act two. The cast of 2 open it up to the audience and encourage them to share their feelings. If you are a fan of Shakespeare being introduced to a difficult topic, or seeking knowledge about a difficult topic and become a fan of Shakespeare, you won’t be disappointed!
Listen to this episode and discover:
- What the one thing in life is that we all share.
- What King Lear and dementia have in common.
- Why the arts are so important for patients with dementia.
