My Life in the Theater: TAKING LEAVE





We saw TAKING LEAVE by Nagle Jackson at the Performance Network in Ann Arbor in 2001. It is a comic treatment of KING LEAR. In this production, he has dementia--maybe one of the first plays we saw about Alzheimers. I remember it as a very fine evening. Of course, the real Lear often seems to be suffering from this sort of break too.

Patti - You know, I heard about that play but didn't know much about it. You've got me interested now...
