Slow Memories

Martin, "an ordinary man with ordinary memories," lies in bed with his wife, Susan, struggling to clarify and comprehend the illusive memories that fill his mind

Out of the shadows his mother appears, speaking of his boyhood and the promise of the years to come. And then Marylou, his first romantic conquest, recounts with him the self-conscious joy of their youthful ardor

Time passes, life grows complicated, the world changes - and there is the deeper love of a wife to give solace and assurance. But still the memories persist, enriching the present with the bittersweet echoes of the past

Presented in New York by both The Playwrights Unit and the ANTA Matinee Series, this lyric and highly imaginative short play captures and illuminates those haunting memories bitter and sweet which are so much a part of the stuff of life
