When memory fades, love endures. Such is the story behind Blackberry Winter at Actor’s Express, a world premiere by onetime Atlantan Steve Yockey. At its center is Vivienne, the adult daughter of a woman with Alzheimer’s disease. In what the Express calls some of Yockey’s most poignant writing to date, Vivienne (Carolyn Cook) confronts the myriad challenges of caring for someone who is vanishing before her eyes. Cook, by the way, cares for her own mother, who has dementia. This co-production with Out of Hand Theater has been in development for several years. Yockey rarely writes the story you’re expecting, making this piece one you shouldn’t miss.
