RKP Presents The Phone and Child Behind the Eyes
The Phone, an original script by Richard Reichman explores a relationship undermined by the onset of Alzheimer's Disease. In this play the mother is confined to a nursing home while her daughter attends to the last life needs of a husband dying from cancer.  After her husband dies the daughter thinks about bringing her mother to her home to live. Unresolved emotional complexities from their earlier years complicate this decision.  

The Phone is directed by Robert Pond who some consider the "father of community theatre" in Anchorage.  Bernie Blaine performs the role of the mother in the nursing home and Jane Baird plays her daughter.  The Phone may not tell how to best deal with an Alzheimer patient  but it leaves an understanding about this difficult situation.

The Child Behind the Eyes, a monodrama by Nava Semel, portrays a mother and her son, Yotam who was born with Down syndrome. The night before his first day of school the mother remembers his birth and the first six years of his life.

Directed by Anchorage based Vivienne Melde the play is further enhanced by Cristel Veraat's original music. Nava Sarracino portrays the mother.  The Child Behind the Eyes is a loving and poetic theatre piece which has been performed worldwide since its debut in 1987.  This is the first time it will appear on an Anchorage stage.
