Two Brothers – a two hander one act play
Two Brothers – a two hander one act play is a drama about two brothers, Gary and Jeremy, and the responsibility of caring for their aging mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease. Although she hardly knows them, they feel that they have a responsibility to care for her, but on the other hand, there is also a need to move on with their own lives. There is a feeling of being trapped in their situation.
When Jeremy decides to break free from their situation and move to Las Vegas with his wife, Gary feels that Jeremy is abandoning their mother and also leaving him with most of the responsibility.
