Grace is a feisty illiterate 90-year-old who has checked herself out of the hospital and returned to her ramshackle cottage in the mountains of Virginia. Enter Gloria, a transplanted New Yorker with a Harvard MBA, now volunteering as a hospice caregiver. Which one do you think needs saving? At first, cultures and generations hilariously collide, but over time they realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. A celebration of the strength and resiliency of women at every age, "Grace & Glorie" is a poignant comedy about love, loss, and the search for meaning in all of our lives.
"A sentimental odd couple crowd pleaser...[with] a steady drip of easy laughs."
–The New York Times
“A gem of a "two hander" sure to be as much a critical and audience favorite.”
–Stage Scene LA
"...the play’s got a ton of heart, and its unabashed sentimentality is often irresistible. It’s the amazing Grace of Grace and Glorie that draws us in.” –Time Out Chicago
“One of the great experiences of my life was performing the role of “Grace” in Tom Ziegler’s Grace & Glorie, directed by the wonderful Cameron Watson who held my hand every step of the way. I was able to go deeply into every carefully honed line, allowing the memories of my Southern relatives and friends to live within me and express themselves through Grace. Honestly, it was a divine, spiritual experience. I am forever grateful to Tom Ziegler for creating and so carefully crafting such a beautiful and inspiring play, one I hope to have the honor to revisit in the near future.”
