5 Reasons to See Jennifer Blackmer's UNRAVELED

Ingram New Works Playwright Jennifer Blackmer’s Unraveled last staged reading is tonight (May 15) at our Ingram New Works Festival. Here are 5 reasons we think you should come see Unraveled.

  1. Because, believe it or not, plays about knitting can be interesting.
  2. Four out of five doctors recommend flushing your tear ducts with a good cry at least once a month.
  3. A few philosophers of space and time postulate that time travel might be possible; theatre artists, however, have no doubt that time travel is possible.
  4. Your mother wore a distinctive perfume; when you smell it, you're instantly transported back in time. (For me, it was Chanel No. 5, and lavender)
  5. You loved someone in your life intensely, and then you had to let them go.

Unraveled Synopsis: What really happens when the person we love most unravels before our eyes? Unraveled centers on the relationship between a young woman, Joy, and her mother, George, who's dying of cancer. George also suffers from a condition called chemotherapy induced dementia, which has prevented any meaningful connection between the two women for quite some time. Anna, an unusual hospice nurse/avid knitter, comes into their lives and teaches Joy a thing or two about life, loss, and the process of letting go.
