WATCH: Jill Daum’s new play, Forget About Tomorrow, is almost autobiographical.
The story revolves around a man in his early 50s who has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's and the difficulties experienced, mostly from the wife's perspective.
Daum is married to John Mann, former lead singer for Spirit Of The West, who received that very news at the same age.
Her insight into the emotional trauma suffered by both parties makes the story feel more like reality than fiction.
There is human suffering and strained relationships but there are laughs in the show as well.
Forget About Tomorrow is on the Belfry in Fernwood.
