BWW Feature: BLACKBERRY WINTER Offers a Theatrical Safe Haven
by Kelli McGurk - Jan 19, 2017

What does it mean to watch a parent suffer from an illness that there is no known cure for?  What does it mean for someone who prides themselves on being capable and proactive to feel helpless and out of control?  What does it mean, as an actress, to navigate these emotions and deliver them to an audience almost entirely by yourself, for ninety minutes, six times a week?

BWW Review: BLACKBERRY WINTER at Orlando Shakes
by Libby Champion - Jan 15, 2017

My mother is…. For many, these three little words evoke things such as "interesting," "crazy," or even "getting old." But when you hear "My mother is suffering - no not suffering - living with Alzheimer's disease," these three little words take on a whole new meaning. When your own mother starts to forget you, do you even know your mother anymore? Do you even know yourself? These are the questions Vivienne painstakingly tries to answer in Steve Yockey's BLACKBERRY WINTER.

Years of success, meticulous planning, and an eye for detail have in no way prepared Vivienne Avery for her mother's slide into the grip of dementia. Vivienne recounts memories of her aging mother and the difficult decisions regarding her care. Interwoven with these stories is an evolving, wondrous 21st century Alzheimer's creation myth-an origin story about a White Egret who tries to protect forest animals as they lose their memories to a blind, oblivious Mole. Blackberry Winter is a moving, occasionally humorous, and deeply human new work.
