Spring 2018

d² productions presents The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble by Canadian and award-winning playwright Beth Graham. Produced by special arrangement with PLAYWRIGHTS GUILD OF CANADA.

This is a Canadian Actors’ Equity Association production under the Artists’ Collective Policy.

The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble written by Beth Graham and produced by d² productions is a remarkable Canadian play which delves into the effects and challenges of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease seen through the eyes of a daughter who’s searching for her own feelings amidst the tricky dynamics and the whirlwind emotions of her family. She may very well fly off the face of the earth if she doesn’t hang on to the kitchen counter. Honest and darkly funny.
