According to director Cary Droste, Moonglow involves two Alzheimer’s patients, Maxine and Joe, who start a romantic relationship that is based entirely on their delusions.
"While in their delusional states they perceive each other to be their former spouses when they were young," Droste said. "This causes conflict with their grown children.
"The play deals with not only Maxine and Joe but also with how their children cope with them and try to understand the disease that affects them.
"It’s a romantic-drama with real life comedy thrown in.
"It’s definitely a tear jerker at times that doesn’t flinch when dealing with raw emotions."
