When Melissa receives a mysterious invitation to brunch from her mother after a two-year estrangement, she returns to a home where nothing is as it seems

Fathers lie, friends leave, and she herself is failing in the artist's world she covets — as her mother practices the art of disappearing before her very eyes

The devastating truth she discovers in her parents' house threatens to tear all of them apart for good

Will Melissa stay and fight for her family?

Or will she disappear too?


"A sharp and often emotionally vital world premiere [that] tackles the subject of dementia" ~ Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

"Dementia (whether in middle age or old age) has become the subject of a number of recent plays. Walker has very skillfully observed the extreme mood swings and erratic behavior that can accompany it … Walker’s play is full of surprises. And it is rooted in the kind of harrowing truths few people want to confront” ~ Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
