Synopsis

In the winter of 2003, during their first glorious year of being in love, Carol and David, both therapists and artists, spend a vacation week in Death Valley, during which David begins experiencing symptoms. On their return home, he is diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Months of chemotherapy follow, culminating in a bone marrow transplant that goes awry, ending David’s life. Throughout their ordeal, Carol chronicles her passage through love, loss, grief and recovery. This play grew from the real journals, photographs and collages that make this universal story poignantly specific. With its simple staging and tour de force performance opportunities for three actors playing multiple roles, Death Valley: A Love Story has a profound potential to heal.
