Stroke Static

Stroke Static

by Lindsay Price

Russ is an eighty-three year-old man in a nursing home struggling with multi-infarct dementia. But in his mind he sees himself as a boy of eighteen, and thus is played by a young actor.

Russ wrestles with reality versus fantasy, and past versus present as he struggles to understand where he is and what is happening to him.

The ensemble plays a variety of real and imaginary characters in Russ’ mind. A heartbreaking look at what goes on in the mind of someone who can’t communicate.

My cast and I loved performing and producing this play. We loved analyzing the meaning in the script, interpreting the intent and purpose, and going deep into character research. It is a great script choice for dedicated, mature student actors.
