A unique theatrical experience, this play attempts to convince the audience that they are watching the performance breakdown before their very eyes.  The “playwright” Lisa explains that she has written a “multi-character exploration of issues of health and illness both in the individual and in a community.”  She has hired actors to play the other characters and has even brought her mother, Ann, to observe and participate.  But from the very beginning, Ann second guesses Lisa’s telling of the story, and as the evening progresses, the other actors join in the criticism.  Ultimately Lisa is forced to confront her own biases and acknowledge the heartbreaking challenge of true empathy, even toward those we love the most.

    A comedy play, directed by Becky and Jerry Jascoviak
    Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred reside in a home for retired opera singers in Kent, England. Each year, on the tenth of October, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva and refuses to sing. But the show must go on in this funny and poignant play.
