"Absence" is a play written by Peter M. Floyd.
Boston-based playwright Peter M. Floyd wrote “Absence” after witnessing his mother’s journey with dementia and the impact it had on his family. The play helps families and caregivers better understand the progression of dementia disorders and the event will help them connect to additional resources for support.
In the play Helen, a strong-willed 75-year-old wife and mother, begins to lose her memory. Her steely façade crumbles, words lose their meaning, and her reality fragments around her.
The reading will be performed by The 5&Dime Theater Group and is sponsored by three Jacksonville-area assisted living for memory care communities, Arbor Terrace Ortega, Arbor Terrace Ponte Vedra and Arbor Terrace San Jose along with Baptist AgeWell and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Families, caregivers and professionals are invited to the reading.
