Ramonan brings Alzheimer’s play to San Diego

A critically-acclaimed Alzheimer’s play with a star cast is coming to San Diego Sept. 27 with the help of a Ramona woman and her organization, Beating Alzheimer’s By Embracing Science (B.A.B.E.S.).

Jamie Tyrone, a nurse and founder and CEO of B.A.B.E.S., is presenting the San Diego production of “Surviving Grace” along with the organization USAgainstAlzheimer’s.

B.A.B.E.S. is dedicated to harnessing the power of women to beat Alzheimer’s by raising funds to support the most promising Alzheimer’s research.

Proceeds from the performance will benefit Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the University of California San Diego and WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s, of which Tyrone is a founding member.

“Surviving Grace,” penned by comedy writer Trish Vradenburg, is described as a brutally honest, irreverent and moving story, laced with humor, that sheds light on the emotional ups and downs that 15.4 million Alzheimer’s caregivers in the United States go through each day.

The performance will feature a special ensemble reading of Act 1 by philanthropist Darlene Shiley, along with Helen Reddy, Diane Rehm, Marilu Henner, Susan Taylor, Robert Foxworth and Jim Laslavic.

The evening will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the play reading at 6:45 and dinner with the cast at 8:30.

The event will be held in Shiley Theatre on the University of San Diego campus, 5998 Alcala Park, San Diego,
