WORTHINGTON — A.C.E. of SW Minnesota will be hosting a free one-act play that offers a glimpse into family life with a person with Alzheimer's disease.

The one-act play “Fortune Cookies," written by Bonnie Dudovitz, features a vibrant octogenarian who’s determined to be the first to know if her recall is slipping beyond what can be considered normal, age-related memory loss. An unexpected visit from her son reveals that she has cooked up a way to help herself and others be on the lookout for the early stages of dementia.

The virtual event of "Fortune Cookies" will begin at 6:30 p.m. June 17. Pre-registration is required through https://marshall-fortune2021.eventbrite.com .

The presentation is being hosted by A.C.E. of SW Minnesota, through a dementia grant from the MN Board on Aging. The play is part of The Remember Project, which was funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to support a 2020-2021 tour in Greater Minnesota. Funding for this unique Dementia Awareness Tour is an Arts Tour Minnesota activity made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
