Newhaven Court at Lindwood presents Absence, an award-winning play about dementia by Peter M. Floyd. Winner of the Jean Kennedy Smith Award and nominated for the Elliott Norton and the IRNE Awards, Absence has been performed across the continent, with a recent stop in Oslo, Norway. The play follows the life of 74-year-old Helen Bastion, but age has not taken its toll on this matriarch’s will and her need to control her family – from her compliant husband David, to her resentful daughter Barb. But when she begins to suffer lapses of memory, her steely facade begins to crumble. As words lose their meaning and reality fragments, Helen’s own sense of self starts to dissolve. Is she truly disappearing, or is she becoming something greater, as the mysterious, mocking figure known as Dr. Bright promises her? Helen struggles desperately to find meaning in an existence that is slowly and inexorably becoming a void. The play will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Michael Anton (Democracy Road) and will include a talented cast of experienced actors from both stage and film.
