SEEKING TALENT
Maria – (Female, 60s-70s) Stage 5-6 Alzheimer’s. Lived a life full of passion, but that life has largely passed from her mind. The disease is slowly dulling her joy and splitting her between the present and the past. (Must be comfortable with water.)

Maria’s sister – (Female, 50s-70s) Disconnected from Maria for most of their adult life, but the recent death of Maria’s husband has brought her sister back into Maria’s life. As Maria struggles with the line between the present and the past, her sister is reminded of their relationship when they were young.

Maria’s mother – (Female, 30s-40s) Distracted and overwhelmed by her failing marriage, but still trying her best. More self-conscious than she’d like to admit.

Maria’s father – (Male, 30s-40s) Non-speaking role. Frustrated and unable to calmly articulate his own emotions even to himself.

Young Maria – (Female, 7-10) Non-speaking role. Must be comfortable with water.
