Studio Theatre Productions presents: THE GRAVITATIONAL PULL OF BERNICE TRIMBLE by Beth Graham, directed by Jane Stott. “Gravity is a good hugger – it keeps you grounded.” Iris Trimble may very well fly off the face of the earth if she doesn’t hang on to the kitchen counter. At least that’s how she feels after her mother, Bernice, a lively, recently widowed fifty-nine year old breaks the news that she has Alzheimer’s.
Iris and her siblings each have their own ways of dealing with the news, while Bernice, as vivacious as ever, is ready to finally put herself first. Exceptionally well written, this play is intense, poignant and wonderfully nuanced.
Playing January 17th to 27th with evening and matinee shows. Tickets are $24 at Tickets Please (11 Gore St. East, Perth). Also available at the door on show nights. Save $5 opening night; $10 rush seats for students with ID. Produced by special arrangement with Playwrights Guild of Canada.
