2012 Olean Community Theatre presents Could I Have This Dance?
Huntington's Disease is often referred to as “The Dance of Death”. This hereditary disease causes degeneration of the nervous system and is incurable. That is the dilemma faced by two sisters whose mother has Huntington’s. It has affected every aspect of their romantic lives, and has also affected the life of their father who accepts and loves his wife as she is. The girls and their father never lose their sense of humor, but the sisters are both repelled by the test and attracted to it, one desperate for the answer and one living in morbid fear of it. Could I Have This Dance? is about love and cherishing what life we are given. It is about difficult choices and a remaining question: Are we better off not looking at what the future holds?
Shows are at 7:30pm Friday and Saturday, and at 2pm on Sunday.
