Where the I Divides by Heidi Armbruster, April 13th, 7PM
On an unseasonably warm October weekend, two sisters return to their small hometown in Wisconsin to problem solve their mother's illness. Their struggles to be caregivers set off a chain reaction that tears through the entire community and leaves Liz, the recently promoted director of the memory care wing, to pick up the pieces. What happens when prolonged adolescence runs headlong into early onset Alzheimer's? A dark comedy about growing up too late and aging too soon.
