world premiere

Joseph has Alzheimers…or he’s going crazy like his mom. He’s not really sure. To Anna, he’s just another test subject. That is, until the course of Anna’s research leads her down the rabbit hole of Joseph’s disturbing and violent past until she transforms into something new…his memory.

Like Flowers For Algernon, this world premiere play by Paul Elliott and Ed Joswick examines what it means to live your life in reverse, and what that means for the people who can’t help but fall in love with you along the way.

“…adept actors who breath life into these well defined characters beautifully penned…pushes you to invest in this moving, conversational character study about the profound impact two human beings on each other’s lives.” ~LA Theatre Review

“…the work is touching and poignant…it folds the audience into the crux of the play’s humanity.” ~ LAist
