Martin discovers his mother’s health and cognitive abilities deteriorating while supporting his brother living with mental illness. Facing emotional and medical problems that feel almost unsolvable, Martin negotiates the delicate framework of caregiving in situations that are both heart-rending and darkly comic. In a symphony of overlapping perspectives, this award-winning play opens a window into the lives of a family going through the hidden, high-stakes struggles of elder care and mental illness.
