Taking Leave

Taking Leave, was brilliantly presented on the Fine Arts stage by Donna Ridella and her cast of Gary Miller (Eliot-1), Mickey Hertzog (Eliot), Heather Bondy (Mrs. Fleming), Kim Czasnojc (Alma), Agnes Dmochowski (Liz) and Becky Dennis (Cordelia).

The three sisters (Alma, Liz and Cordelia) encounter numerous roadblocks (one of which is the caring Mrs. Fleming) in their quest to solve their father's situation,

while Eliot's alter ego drifts in and out of reality.

Eliot finds himself in the fogginess between our world and the one that comes after taking leave.

There is much discussion and consternation,

Before Cordelia slowly wins her father's confidence and takes on the task of escorting him through the remainder of his life.
