Is It Wednesday?
by Pam Calabrese MacLean
Directed by Megan Andres
Featuring Miriam Bronstein and Jane Burpee

Two elderly women meet at a bus stop, as they chat they struggle to hold on to their memories. A hilarious short piece full of word play, misunderstandings and poignant exploration of the aging process.
