“A Thousand Circlets” Audience Comments

“Essential Theatre’s production of Theroun Patterson’s A THOUSAND CIRCLETS is wonderful. Theroun Patterson‘s writing is smart, funny, tender, painful, and absolutely real. The performances are honest. Betty Hart‘s direction is spot on. It’s hard for me to watch anything about Alzheimer’s as it always hits a little too close to home. This production was no exception but the relationship between husband and wife was one of the more honest depictions I ever seen of the pain, anger, and confusion that rains down in the early days of diagnosis. I will be seeing it again…as soon as I see the other two shows in the festival — A SLEEPING COUNTRY & GREAT FALLS.” Jo Howarth Noonan
