Overview

This remarkable play starred Constance Cummings in a Tony-winning performance on Broadway. Emily Stilson, seventy years old and a celebrated former aviatrix and stunt pilot, suffers a stroke and is plunged into a world of disorientation and grief. Memories flood in between painful attempts to relearn the basic functions of everyday life. Aided by a dedicated young therapist, Emily’s flights of memory and emotion create an evocative portrait of the ability of the human spirit to renew and survive. An actress' tour-de-force.
