Friday March 16th

Sliabh Aughty Drama Group, Co. Clare (Confined)

“Moonglow” by Kim Carney

Maxine, a feisty bitter Alzheimer’s victim, doesn’t want to move into a nursing facility. But when she meets Joe, a widower who shares her love for dance, her outlook begins to change. Although the two clash when lucid, their hazy memories overlap, and they begin an affair that rejuvenates and fulfils them. But can these lovers – played simultaneously by an elderly twosome and a young vivacious couple – stay together despite their families’ wishes and their fading vitality? The play is set in a retirement home for the elderly in Michigan U.S.A. The year is 1997.
