In recognition of National Alzheimer’s and Caregivers Awareness Month Dot directed by Miller Lucky Jr., takes a humorous and poignant look at Alzheimer’s disease

In recognition of National Alzheimer’s and Caregivers Awareness Month, North Carolina A&T State University, Paul Robeson Theatre and The Center for Outreach in Alzheimer’s Aging and Community Health present the play Dot by Colman Domingo. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in America. African-Americans are twice more likely to have the disease than our Caucasian counterparts and there is no cure. Dot the hit new play confronts the realities of Alzheimer’s disease with humor, dignity and love.

The holidays are always a wild family affair at the Shealy house. But this year, Dotty and her three grown children gather with more than exchanging presents on their minds. Dotty struggles to hold on to her memory as Alzheimer’s begins to take its toll, and managing her illness has fallen like a ton of bricks on the shoulders of her daughter, Shelly.  This twisted and hilarious new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents and the children who must fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves.
