"Memories are the tiniest, most fragile of things," says the White Egret in Steve Yockey's "Blackberry Winter," making its world premiere at Salt Lake Acting Company as part of the National New Play Network. The egret is one of two characters in a creation myth invented by Vivienne Avery to help her deal with her mother's advancing Alzheimer's disease.
Vivienne, powerfully and poignantly portrayed by April Fossen, has had to become a "proactive family care manager" and has discovered "a need to be busy and distracted" to survive the shock of watching her once-vibrant mother, Rosemary, "disappear" into the disease.
