4000 Days
by Peter Quilter
Onstage April 29 – May 15, 2021
On Demand beginning May 8, 2021

Directed by Lucian Restivo

What would you do if you forgot the last decade of your life? After a blood clot unexpectedly forms in his brain, Michael (played by Carlen Kernish) ends up in a coma for three weeks. His bitter mother Carol (Jacqueline Jones) and his dull but well-meaning partner Paul (Todd Patterson) are united in their grief over Michael, and in their intense dislike of each other.

When Michael wakes, 11 years of his memory have vanished. He remembers nothing of the last 4000 days. He remembers nothing of Paul. It is as though the relationship never existed. Paul must now fight to bring Michael’s memory back while Carol fights to remove him from their lives completely.

Michael, still charming and witty, concentrates his recovery on creating a giant mural on the back wall of his hospital room. An expression of his loss, his hopes, and his desire to live his life as the man he was 11 years ago, not the man he has become.

This production will feature a reduced capacity of 27 seats per performance, in accordance with CDC guidelines.  Please contact the Box Office for any specific seating requests, including handicapped seating. A streaming version will also be available.
