Jonatha Brooke’s musical play, “My Mother Has 4 Noses,” is a mother-daughter, end-of-life love story complicated by religion and dementia. Every Saturday matinee in March includes a Talkback session with experts in the field of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and caregiving.
Jason Karlawish,MD, Associate Director of the Penn Memory Center, joins Jonatha on March 15, 2014 at 2pm at the Duke on 42nd Street in New York City.
The New York Times says of the play, “In a haunted and haunting play with music, Ms. Brooke is bearing witness, recounting the descent into dementia of her mother, Darren Stone Nelson, and her experience of caring for Ms. Nelson in the last years of her life.”
And the New York Post writes: “Jonatha Brooke’s affectionate, well-crafted, surprisingly funny new musical, “My Mother Has Four Noses,” is well worth your attention.”
