Chasing Rainbows is a love story in two acts. We begin in the walled city of Lucca, Italy, where Bob and Donald fall in love with pretty much everything Italian – everything that is, except the damned language, which for over two decades Bob butchers, while Donald seems to have sailed through. Ironic, in that Act Two, which takes place in Portland, Oregon, Donald tells Bob, “The words seem stuck in my head, I just can’t get them out.” It marks the beginning of his having Primary Progressive Aphasia, and his dissent into dementia, and ultimately death.

In the end, Bob is left to find a reason for living, a good purpose to carryon, while honoring Donald. He finds inspiration in writing a play, this play, and by plays end, hopes you will come to know and love the sweet husband who won the playwright’s heart, sharing with him decades of joy, connection, and true love. 

OF NOTE: 100% of ticket sales will be donated to the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD), the organization that supported the playwright’s husband while he was sick. Tickets are all available on a donation basis, and ticket sales are processed through the AFTD donation website.
