Grace is 90 years old and is living alone in her house on a mountain next to an apple orchard. Glorie is new to the area, having just moved from New York City with her husband. Glorie decides to volunteer with hospice while she looks for a new job. It is through hospice that Glorie meets Grace. The goal of hospice is to care for patients in the final months of their life attending to their needs
These two women develop an unexpected friendship. Through laughter and compassion, they realize they share a lot in common despite coming from such different backgrounds. Their light-hearted interactions evolve into very deep conversations about life and death.
The acting in this production is excellent. Rena Cherry Brown is superb as Gracie, playing her as a stubborn old woman possessing the wisdom of age. She nails the characterization of having a hard exterior with a soft center. Katie Graviss Bechtler is great as Glorie. She truly seems like a NYC transplant, a bit lost in a country home in the mountains trying to find out what she wants to do next with her life. Together they make quite an odd couple that are a joy to watch for the full two acts.
