Kumu Kahua Theatre Presents "Who You Again?" A Dementia Play

| Season 4 | Episode 6 |


In this episode: Donna Blanchard, the Managing Director of Kumu Kahua Theatre, offered us an inside look into the new dementia play at Kumu Kahua Theatre. Plotline: A family struggles to care for their matriarch as dementia slowly steals her memories away. Her grandson's method of existing within -- and adding to -- the imaginative world she inhabits creates a special bond. He helps her cope with changing realities, and she gives him the gift of self-acceptance.
