by Tom Ziegler
From Oscar and Felix to Sandy and Danny, the theatrical device of opposites attracting has made for great comedic drama throughout the years.  Tom Ziegler’s play, Grace and Glorie uses this device to look at the humor one can find at even the most desperate of times.  Grace is a feisty, illiterate 90-year-old cancer patient who has checked herself out of the hospital and returned to her cottage in the mountains of Virginia. Gloria is a transplanted New Yorker with a Harvard MBA, who is now volunteering as a hospice caregiver.  At first, cultures and generations collide, but over time they realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. Grace and Glorie will be presented at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse from March 17-20.
The play is a poignant, touching, comedy about love, loss, and the search for meaning in all of our lives.  It features two Playhouse favorites, Barbara Webb and Molly Parker Myers.  
The production is directed by Timothy L’Ecuyer.  He says, “The uproarious highs and tragic lows contained in this play demand actors of the highest caliber.  I am beyond pleased to say that the two women featured in the Playhouse’s production more than rise to the occasion.” 

Grace and Glorie is the best kind of play: one that will have you laughing through your tears.
Grace and Glorie will run for five performances, Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.  Tickets cost between $16 and $27.  They can be ordered by calling (603) 279-0333 or by using a credit card at
We are delighted to be working with the amazing staff at the Central NH VNA and Hospice on Grace and Glorie.  

In addition to providing technical expertise and advice, Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice will be hosting special talkback sessions after performances to discuss the play and answer questions about specific subject matter. Talkback schedule includes: 
Thursday March 17th hosted by James Miller, Bereavement Coordinator
Friday March 18th hosted by John Davies, Hospice Chaplain
Saturday March 19th (evening performance) hosted by Jennifer Laramie RN, Hospice Director & Dr. Carolyn Crosby, Hospice Medical Director
Sunday March 20th hosted by Margaret Franckhauser MS MPH RN, Chief Executive Officer.
