WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Atmosphere of Memory opens LAByrinth's 2011/12 Season and tells the story of playwright Jon Stone, who has recently found the courage to write his masterpiece: a play about his upbringing. But problems arise when his actual mother is cast to play his mother on stage and his estranged father remembers the family history differently. Jon is forced to rewrite not only his play, but his past as well. With twists hilarious and heartbreaking, playwright Katz (Philip Roth in Khartoum, Freak) turns Williams and O'Neill on their heads by imagining a world where the boundaries between life / art, and fact /fiction, are as blurry as The Atmosphere of Memory itself.
