WPL02142D – Dramawise: The Duration by Bruce Graham
Audrey Batten and her daughter have a deep conflict. How do two strong women with very different grief coping strategies find common ground? In this moving, powerful, and absorbing play by Bruce Graham, family comes first, but it isn’t easy. In this interactive discussion about the Palm Beach Dramaworks production of “The Duration” by Bruce Graham, PBD’s Gary Cadwallader examines the characters, their relationships, the major themes of the play, and today’s sociological relevance. Interesting multimedia clips supporting the discussion will be used to enhance the understanding of the production. Participants receive a copy of the play beforehand and a comprehensive, informative PBD Dramaguide written specifically for this discussion. After an in-depth conversation about inner strength, fear, and love, participants leave with a deeper understanding of the play and the dynamics of grieving and forgiveness.
