Are You Dealing With Someone
With Memory Loss?
A Story of Dementia, Caregiving and
At the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio
December 16th and 17th shows start at 7:30pm
This one woman show by Jonatha Brookes, an award winning singer and song writer is so beautifully written and performed there should be a warning label with it, “Empty your bladder and bring Kleenex” because you will be brought to tears and lifted with joy as your belly aches from laughing. You are going to adore her music and the magic in her messaging!
Jonatha’s mom did have four noses, and at least as many names. She was a published poet, a clown, a Christian Scientist and her eccentric personality shines throughout the play. In addition, she had Alzheimer’s disease. But in her final years, she raised her theatrics to a new level.
Together Jonatha and her mother share their passion for words and music. Their unwavering sense of humor is the glue to their oh so special relationship. To this day, I can still hear Jonatha’s mother call out, “Boolie,” (Jonatha’s nic name) and my heart melts as I feel the warmth of their love portrayed in this play.
On December 17th, 2013,
