This remarkable play starred Constance Cummings in a Tony-winning performance on Broadway. Emily Stilson, 70-years old and a celebrated former aviatrix and stunt pilot, suffers a stroke and is plunged into a world of disorientation and grief. Memories flood in between painful attempts to re-learn the basic functions of everyday life. Aided by a dedicated young therapist, Emily's flights of memory and emotion create an evocative portrait of the ability of the human spirit to renew and survive. An actress' tour-de-force.
"The most distinguished work of this season." - The New York Times
"A compassionate and moving study in courage destined to be one of the unforgettable memories of many a season, a play to be experienced and understood." - The New York Post
