Absence on the Cape

Absence_ButtonAbsence returns to New England with a production this May at the Cotuit Center of the Arts out on Cape Cod. Directed by Robert Brock, the show runs in the Center’s Black Box Theater from Thursday, May 5, through Sunday, May 22. I will be on hand on opening night for a post-show talkback, which will be followed by a reception. So, come and join us!

Helen Bastion is 74 years old, but age has not taken its toll on this matriarch’s will or her need to control her family, from her compliant husband David to her resentful daughter Barb. But when she begins to suffer lapses of memory, her steely facade begins to crumble. As words lose their meaning and reality fragments, Helen’s own sense of self starts to dissolve. Is she truly disappearing, or is she becoming something greater, as the mysterious, mocking figure known as Dr. Bright promises her? Helen struggles desperately to find meaning in an existence that is slowly and inexorably becoming a void.
