Milvotchkee, Visconsin follows the fascinating journey of a woman experiencing various stages of dementia. Molly is a widow who works as a tour guide at Fred Smith’s magical Wisconsin Concrete Park and – if she believes those around her – she’s losing her mind and facing the reality of becoming a non-entity like the very sculptures in her beloved park.
This play is uniquely told through the lens of Molly herself as she journeys through this new territory, fighting for her dignity against the insensitivities of overburdened health professionals and the well-meaning but sometimes self-serving machinations of a family who attempts to help.
MOLLY: A woman in her 50’s/60’s. A museum docent/guide of sorts for Fred Smith’s Concrete Park in Phillips, Wisconsin.
RICHARD: A man in his 60’s/70’s. MOLLY’s husband. Deceased. Fond of cheese and all things Wisconsin – but not in an overly showy way.
DAUGHTER/FILM ACTOR 2/GROUP LEADER/YOUNG DAUGHTER/NURSE: A woman in her mid-to-late-30’s.
DOCTOR HOLE/SON/ SNAKE OIL SALESMAN/HOLE/YOUNG SON/YOUNG RICHARD: A man in his mid-to-late-30’s.
