Taking Leave
Eliot Pryne was once a highly regarded professor of English Literature. His specialty?
Shakespeare’s King Lear. As the curtain rises on this story, Eliot is packing what he thinks is a suitcase and leaving what he thinks is a hotel.

In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, he is “taking leave” of the real world and imagining a new one, but the transition is painful. His three daughters Alma, Liz and Cordelia struggle to know what his next steps will be and how they can help.

A heartwarming story, filled with unexpected but compassionate humor, this rich dramatic comedy is about living and dying, and the strangely comedic value of both.
