The Sunset Syndrome

 

Review


An honest, emotional show, the Sunset Syndrome is a thoughtful, touching exploration of aging and dementia. Peg Young delivers a powerful performance as Emily, as she deals with her husband’s Alzheimer’s as well as her own declining health. Exploring the relationship between husband and wife, as well as parents and children, this play will affect audiences both young and old. What responsibilities do we have to our family, and how do we balance being both a caretaker and dependent? While some of the play’s dialogue—particularly that of the character Samuel—feels a bit artificial and stiff, the emotions of the show are genuine and real. Reviewed by Bryan Saunders.

    My wife and I attended the Monday night show and loved it. We were very impressed with all of the cast and their performances. I’m sure everyone would be able to relate to one or more of the cast, as we did; as this family deals with Alzheimer’s. Touching and authentic. Highly recommended!
