Apologies! The performance has been delayed until Wednesday, June 26 at 5:30 p.m.


"La Madre," adapted by Atlantic Fellow Armagan Uysal from the original play titled "The Father," penned by French author Florian Zeller in 2012 and translated into English by Christopher Hampton in 2014, takes a unique approach to portraying Alzheimer's disease without adhering to a conventional narrative style. Delving deeply into the inner experience of the illness, the play challenges viewers to reconsider individuals not merely as pitiable objects, but through their own perspectives. In a single act, it immerses the audience into another's mind and emotions, inviting them to explore the power of empathy and understanding.
