Steering Into The Skid: A One Act Memory Care Play    
steering into the skid

Steering into the Skid helps family members, caregivers, local businesses, and the broader community openly discuss dementia and the most well-known form of memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease.

Audience members meet Tim and Amanda, played by Twin Cities’ professional actors Jim Pounds and Danette McCarthy. In 12 short scenes, one per month–starting on New Year’s Eve–and all taking place in Tim & Amanda’s SUV, the audience comes to know this loving couple and bear witness to the early progression of dementia.

As the months pass, the audience sees the subtle changes and adjustments the couple is forced to deal with due to memory loss.

The play has prompted conversations addressing the isolation and fear associated with dementia. Experience this unique approach using theater and conversation to learn and make decisions about the future.
