Joy Gallagher, a professor of philosophy and physics, comes to terms with the certain death of her mother. A play about time, space, memory…and the tangle of life.
Joy has spent her life pursuing ways to explain space and time. But her theories haven’t prepared her for a heart-rending reality: illness has transformed her glamorous, quick-witted mother, George, into a woman she doesn’t recognize….and who cannot recognize Joy. Struggling with the pressures of career, caregiving, and impending loss, Joy hires Anna, a hospice nurse, to help. But as George develops a unique bond with Anna, Joy feels her mother slipping even further away. When time and space start to work against her, can Joy keep everything from unraveling?
