Vivienne Avery recounts her memories of caring for an aging mother who is slowly fading away and the difficult decisions regarding her care. Vivienne shares her journey from the moment of her mother's diagnosis with Alzheimer's to the present, inviting the audience into the world of this strange and debilitating disease. The drama unfolds through a series of interwoven stories about the memories sparked by a series of everyday objects. Interwoven with these stories is an evolving, wondrous 21st century Alzheimer's creation myth -- an origin story about a White Egret who tries to protect the animals of the forest as they lose their memories to a blind, oblivious Mole. Both the myth and the overall structure reflect the science behind Alzheimer's in this funny, poetic and deeply moving play.

The setting is the dawn of the age of reason in the early 17th century when Galileo was teaching young students the incredible account of how the earth moves around the sun, rather than the other way around. His heretical announcement, that both the moon and Jupiter only reflect the sun's light, is brought to the attention of the church and Galileo is summoned to the Vatican. His friends abandon him and his appeal to the Pope is intercepted by the inquisitor. Galileo recants, but even while imprisoned continues his writings surreptitiously. Throughout his life Galileo is pitted against an institution which claims the truth as its own commodity and threatens torture and death to those who would offer an opposing vision.
