Theatre Unbound presents Unraveled
Discount: $6 Sundays
Unraveled tells the story of Joy, a professor of the philosophy of space and time, who struggles with caring for her mother, George. George suffers from a severe form of dementia induced by chemotherapy. An insightful hospice nurse (and avid knitter) enters their lives and teaches Joy a thing or two about life, loss, and the process of letting go. A beautiful and relevant story, as more and more women find themselves caring for aging parents. Unraveled is very frank about the stresses and the sometimes surprising rewards of that situation. A world premiere by Jennifer Blackmer. Performances at The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis, 410 Oak Grove Street.
Recommended for ages: 16+ for adult situations and language
Use code NEWBIE online for $6 tickets to any Sunday matinee performance (10/27, 11/3, 11/10). Or make reservations by calling 612.721.1186. For more information email:

Joy Peters - co-creator and writer for

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
