In loving memory of Betty Fellows (Aunt Betts) who passed away September 14, 2013 due to complications with Alzheimer’s. Through this play she continues to teach us all how tenuous this journey is when crippled with the disease.
In a summer cottage on Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family’s future but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding-before the tide goes out. This new drama hums with dark humor and powerful emotion.
“A poignant play about illness, death and personal choice, The Outgoing Tide is nothing if not intensely relatable. But while speaking to a broad audience, Bruce Graham’s three-person play… possesses a notable modesty.” – Variety
