Finding Nora’s Lost


“Debilitated by Alzheimer’s disease, Nora Blodget follows the vision of her late husband into the woods on a cold night. Nora’s life flashes before her- revealing her former life as a dynamic teacher, a caring wife and a loving mother. Will Nora’s daughter find her mother in time?”
White Station’s latest theatrical venture “Nora’s Lost” is a one-act play that covers the subject and reality of Alzheimer’s Disease, a commonly overlooked illness that currently affects 5.2 million people in America alone. The piece features great plot structure and deeply-rooted character development.
David Boone, the director of White Station’s newest production, chose to put on “Nora’s Lost” both for its message and because it hits close to home.
“I like the theme of the play,” Boone said. “I like the fact that young people need to learn a lot about Alzheimer’s. My grandmother passed away last January. She was ninety-two and she had Alzheimer’s.”
The theatre department plans to take “Nora’s Lost” to competition for the Tennessee Theatre Association, so stepping up to the challenge requires immense preparation, characterization and plot-study.
“I really enjoy watching people go from proficient to emerging to advanced and watching them grow with every rehearsal- year after year just getting better and growing into wonderful actors,” Boone said.
Audiences can look forward to a compelling storyline and a talented group of student-actors working together to deliver a difficult, but meaningful and unique piece.
Many like Stuart Thompson (10) are already planning to attend “Nora’s Lost.”
“I look forward to seeing the acting and how well they portray the characters in the story,” Thompson said.
“Nora’s Lost” will run from October 20 to October 23. Tickets will be sold for $5 at the door. Come to support your fellow Spartans and uncover the remarkable story of Nora Blodget.
