Maid's Door Play
“Maid’s Door” is a play written by Cheryl Davis that centers around an African-American matriarch Ida Farrell exhibiting signs of Alzheimer’s disease. The drama addresses the impacts of Ida’s changes on her family, including her adult daughter who cares for her. The Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer's Prevention partnered with the North Carolina Black Repertory Company to promote the play and host talk-back sessions after the play. In these sessions, experts talked with the audience about the impact of Alzheimer’s on families and the community and what people can do about it.
