About Milvotchkee, Visconsin 

Molly is a widow with a hole in her head.  She works as a docent at Fred Smith’s magical Wisconsin Concrete Park and – if she believes those around her – she’s losing her mind and facing the reality of becoming a non-entity like the very sculptures in her beloved park. 

Embark on the fascinating journey of a woman experiencing various stages of dementia and experience the wonder and mystery of Molly’s demented mind – journeying into the belly of a whale, galloping with Clydesdales, witnessing the intrigue of movie characters coming to life – as she fights for her dignity against the insensitivities of overburdened health professionals and the well-meaning but sometimes self-serving machinations of a family who attempts to help.  A comedy about a tragedy, this play is uniquely told through the lens of Molly herself as she journeys through this new territory and finds hope in her new life.
