Written by Elaine Hutchinson. Laughing In Spite Of is based on Rosalyn Morgan’s book “Laughing to Keep From Crying, This Alzheimer’s Thing is No Joke”. It is the story of the extreme agony and undying love of a daughter. It is the story of Rosalyn Morgan’s own and real life experience, caring for her mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The play, shares the feelings, the waves of emotions experienced as the fortunate one chosen to endure a journey through a tumultuous sea of frustration. The play portrays the dichotomy between the mother’s inability to understand what is happening to her, and the daughter’s lack of knowledge about Alzheimer’s and its progression. Having to maintain emotional sanity, and fighting to ‘stay above water’, Rosalyn yet finds humor in her experience, even as she copes with all that life heaps on her through the various stages of Alzheimer’s and its certain end.
The book and the play offer practical lessons and bring awareness to caregivers, family members, and friends. The play and the book provide ‘tools’ that can be used to fight the upheaval and despair that Alzheimer’s disease, by its nature creates. It attempts to help others to understand what is required for the caretakers of those with Alzheimer’s. The play and the book raise awareness and will hopefully inspire support and funding Alzheimer’s disease.
