Activities of Daily Living
When her Medicare card arrived with a special senior citizen “invisibility cloak,” one woman fought back. Incorporating innovative animation, Activities of Daily Living uses hilarious and poignant stories to weave together the threads of a life lived – and one that is hardly invisible. From noted LA stage director and TV writer, Kevin Larkin: “Proving that life is not just wasted on the young, Joanna Lipari’s brilliant solo show, Activities of Daily Living, guided by Beth Dunnington’s spot-on direction, faces the hard realities of (dare I say) aging? Lipari’s journey will stay with you. It is as much your story as hers.”

When you get lost in a parking garage, the adventure begins…
“It seems that each of us is a tiny twig that falls from the universal tree. Little twigs, let’s band together.”
Water Runs Over Me
“Water runs over me and through me
to bring forth a wellness that gives me strength…”
