The Caregivers

2018
in development Premiering June 1 & 3 in the Pig Iron Studios
A new play created by home health aides, hospice workers, and family caregivers that explores the spaces where love meets obligation.

In search of care for her husband Bill, Evelyn finds herself on an unexpected journey––to an island where no one ever gets sick, a Peruvian bakery that boasts the perfect loaf of bread, and back in time to the 1960's where she first met Bill at a Synagogue dance. Led by Pig Iron Associate Artistic Director Nell Bang-Jensen, The Caregivers is a new play created by home health aides, hospice workers, and family caregivers that explores the spaces where love meets obligation.

Performances are free and open to the public:
Friday, June 1, 7:30pm
Sunday, June 3, 2:00pm
