Based on a true story that originally appeared in the New York Times Modern Love column, this solo show offers a comic look at living with Parkinson's. More…
At age 47, Phil's wife is diagnosed with Parkinson's. This sends him on a roller-coaster ride through an escalating mountain of pills, dangerous liaisons, questions of manhood and womanhood, desire, faith, and love. On this ride, he finds himself exploring whether our personalities and passions may be little more than tamper-resistant chemical reactions stirred up in our brains.
