“Taking Leave” Production by Galt Little Theatre

Posted on: January 30th, 2013 by Chloe Hamilton

Come be a part of this wonderful and educational production.

Eliot Pryne, professor of English Literature—, specialty Shakespeare—, is packing what he thinks is a suitcase and leaving what he thinks is a hotel. In the early stages of
Alzheimer’s disease, Eliot is “taking leave” of the real world and imagining a new one, but the transition is painful. His alter-ego, seen only by the audience, charts this final voyage speaking as Eliot once did when he was the leading authority on Shakespeare’s King Lear. The visitation of Eliot’s three daughters, Alma, Liz and Cordelia, forms the central event of this oddly comic, yet fully sympathetic play. The decision —whether or not to have their father put in a “home” ,— provides the central conflict among the three very different sisters. As the alarming number of Alzheimer’s victims keeps growing, this play’s relevance increases daily.
