“The Comfort to Come” is a new play by Whitman College graduate Lisa Battle, and is directed by Whitman College Professor Emerita Nancy Simon. The cast includes: Shauna Lilly Bogley, Kevin Loomer, Nathan Loomer, Kathryn Bogley, and Julie Jones.
Cass (Shauna Lilly Bogley) spent most of her life taking care of her mother who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. She realized that as her mother lost touch with the reality around her, she created a new one. The hereditary nature of the disease means Cass soon follows her mother into this reality – the fantasy world they created when she was a child. The family Cass leaves behind watches with wonder and sorrow as she slips into a world of griffins, mermaids, and rhyming couplets. Cass, however, finally finds comfort joining her mother in their shared creation at the border of life and death.
