U.S. Against Alzheimer’s Network Reading of ‘Surviving Grace’
George Vradenburg beamed as he hailed his wife Trish as “the most glorious playwright on the face of the earth.” The audience at the Phillips Collection fortunate to attend a reading of Act I of “Surviving Grace” on Oct. 10 clearly agreed. The play, cleverly infused with wit, was read in the capable hands of Diane Rehm, Marilu Henner, Dan Glickman, Meryl Comer, Terry Moran and Stephen Schmidt. The evening’s message hit home as George Vradenburg urged the rapt audience to talk about Alzheimer’s, give it wisdom and resources and activate personal and professional networks to mobilize the nation to seek a cure. The evening raised $150,000 toward that goal.
