In cooperation with Accord Hospice, Emerson Theater Collaborative presents Vesta, a play by Bryan Harnetiaux, on April 12 and 13, 2019 at Sedona United Methodist Church.
The story focuses on Vesta, played by local actor Lisa Schatz Glinsky, who is nearing the end of her life. The play explores the decisions and emotions her family must face through this process. Vesta deals with the issues of aging and dying in a thoughtful, sometimes humorous, manner. Following the play, the audience and actors will participate in a facilitated discussion.
The play is produced by Accord Hospice in partnership with Emerson Theater Collaborative and is directed by Breinne Reeder, of Accord Hospice. Accord Hospice is a family-owned and locally operated organization working to provide compassionate care for people living with terminal illness and support and education for their families and caregivers.
Written by Spokane, Wash., playwright Bryan Harnetiaux, Vesta has been produced in a number of communities throughout the United States. Local productions for the purposes of education and discourse on end-of-life issues are licensed by the Hospice Foundation of America (www.hospicefoundation.org ) in Washington, DC.
