Garrett Davis’ award-winning stage play “Forget Me Not” will be performed July 14-15 at the DuSable Museum of African American History (740 E. 56th Place). The play is sponsored by African Americans Against Alzheimer’s.
Tickets for the July 15 performance are sold out, but you can still purchase tickets for the 2 p.m. show on July 14 at the African Americans Against Alzheimer’s event page.
From the show description:
“Forget Me Not” takes the audience into the life of a family facing this medical challenge and shows its impact on not just the immediate family but friends, marriage, and those in the community as well.
Many have left the theater realizing there are people close to them who may have signs pointing to Alzheimer’s. Thanks to a panel of experts presented during the event, they leave equipped with answers to important questions about medical and social services that are available in their communities and learn how researchers are working to find ways to prevent and more effectively treat Alzheimer’s — important work that requires each of us — especially African Americans who are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than others — to consider participating in clinical trials.
