Returning to the family home the night before her mother’s funeral, 64-year-old IRIS discovers that fiercely independent GRACE may have hastened her own demise – accidentally, through stubborn, irrational decisions. IRIS reviews the final chapter of their relationship, to make sense of GRACE’s kooky self-sufficiency, and find closure.
IRIS and GRACE butt heads over independent living, health regimes and their need to connect before it’s too late. Caregivers who have struggled to coax aging parents into accepting help and taking their medicine will relate to the rap-style argument of “Pills, Pills, Pills” and the tongue-in-cheek music hall number, “Ain’t It Great to Be Senile”.
It’s not all a battle. The show contains poignant moments when both women long for a relationship that’s just out of reach. IRIS wants to protect her mother; GRACE just wants to spend time together. The ending is inevitable; the final words are a bonus.
