OLD LOVE NEW LOVE is a funny, moving, and life-affirming play about the challenges of caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's Disease. It tells the story of a mother and a daughter navigating the choppy waters of infidelity under very different circumstances: Gloria's husband Colin has fallen for another Alzheimer's patient at the facility where he resides. Michelle's husband Matt has strayed after losing a local election and wrestling with his unfulfilled ambitions. A play about what we can't remember and what we can forgive, OLD LOVE NEW LOVE celebrates the lengths we go to in order to honor the lives of those we have loved.Luna Stage is a small but mighty professional theatre company located in Essex County, NJ, just under 15 miles from New York City.
