Sleeping Peacefully

“A play that shows how one family manages Alzheimer’s with laughter, tears, and hope.”

 


Sleeping Peacefully

Sleeping Peacefully is a play written by a local author about a woman whose father has Alzheimer’s. She struggles with his disease as well as her own issues. As she confronts her inner conflicts and her husband’s job, we see the family unite. This story of love and hope is a moving tribute to families that deal with life’s difficulties.
