THE FORGETTING CURVE

Date: Saturday, September 20, 2014

Location: The Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116
Cost: Get half off all full-price tickets by using discount code CURVE50

Join us for this moving production based on the true story of a young man who was so desperate to cure his epilepsy that he underwent experimental surgery – a procedure which ultimately destroyed his brain’s ability to form new memories.

The play's largely LGBTQ company knows just how much parents need a night out so they are offering this special performance with discounted tickets to area LGBTQ parents, as a great option, just for YOU.

After the screening, please be sure to stick around for an important conversation with the director, her team, and area LGBTQ parent group leaders, discussing the production’s themes, like our ongoing struggles for work-life balance, how we support those we love, the sacrifices that we all make, and how our memories often define who we are.
