Surviving Grace

Region Premier!

SUrviving Grace by Trish Vradenburg
Directed by Mark-Brian Sonna

Although you probably know Trish Vradenburg as cofounder of Alzheimer's Action PAC and co-chair of the National Alzheimer's Gala in Washington D.C., Ms. Vradenburg is also an accomplished writer for television (Designing Women, Family Ties, Kate & Allie), print (the book Liberated Lady and journalist for New York Daily News and The Boston Globe) and even live stage.

Her most celebrated play to date, Surviving Grace, makes its local premiere this summer, presented by Rover Dramawerks, the resident producing company in Plano's Cox Building Playhouse.

Surviving Grace is a comedic yet poignant story of a family torn apart by the onset of Alzheimer's. Given the opportunity of an experimental treatment, the family and the matriarch Grace rally in what at first promises a second chance.

Part autobiography, part fantasy, the play at times parallels Ms. Vradenburg's own travails with Alzheimer's, having lost both her mother and mother-in-law to the disease. A renowned wit famous for one line firecrackers, she says of the play and its similarity to her own family: "I come from the 'Don't air your dirty linens in public' family, so if she had seen anything like this ... it would have killed her anyway."

Specifically, she wrote the play to bring visibility to a disease that affects millions of people, yet is rarely discussed openly. "I think," she says, "its time has come."

We hope you will support this wonderful play and her cause of bringing awareness of Alzheimer's to the forefront by forwarding this information to interested individuals, organizations, and communities.

Rover Dramawerks presents Trish Vradenburg's Surviving Grace at Plano's Cox Building Playhouse, 1517 H Avenue in Plano, May 31 through June 23, 2007. For more information call (972) 849-0358 or visit online
