Memory and Identity are Present in “Absence”

Though many stories of dementia focus primarily on the relationships and emotional struggles of patients’ close friends and family, the script of “Absence” distinguishes itself by choosing to focus primarily on Helen’s interior losses. In doing so, the production forces the audience to contemplate the fine line between memory and identity in a way that lingers in the viewer’s mind afterwards.
