A TREE, FALLING

Upstream Theater presents the U.S. premiere of A Tree, Falling by Australian playwright Ron Elisha.  Octogenarian Lenny was once a busy GP at the epicenter of a vibrant family who now has no recollection whatever of his earlier life. These days his chief adventure is the daily tracking down of the remote control—at least until a friendly visitor named Lola from the local council shows up. Try as she might to help Lenny recover his memory, though, he continues to live within the moment, and the poignancy of his plight forces Lola to question the meaning of her own past as well as her future.  Award-winning playwright Ron Elisha captures the everyday moments of humor as well as sadness that result from Alzheimer’s or dementia, while gently reminding us of our own fragility as we try to maintain our balance on the tightrope between night and day, between yesterday and tomorrow, between meaning and meaninglessness.  Michael Dorsey directs Jerry Vogel and Kari Ely in this “witty, moving, and beautifully observed” piece (Kate Herbert, Melbourne Herald Sun).
