Aldous Remembers – Romantic drama Plays

Aldous Bentley has a problem: he is prone to dangerous sleep walking and forgetfulness. His memory often eludes him; he can’t remember his wedding day, or precious moments he’s accumulated in his life. Now, after one year of marriage to his beloved wife Wanda, he often fails to remember anything that involves their time together.

One night during a small gathering at the home of their longtime friend’s Vance and Lisa Shante’ Aldous confesses to Vance in the kitchen that because of his inability to remember significant moments with Wanda, he feels he may not be in love with her, and that she is the wrong woman.

Meanwhile in the living room Wanda confides in Lisa that she too is not sure she married the right man, and that his fleeting memory and odd sleep walking has smothered the fiery passion she once had for Aldous. With lost memories from Aldous and growing frustration from Wanda, will the Bentley’s love survive this early test in their marriage?

Lovers of fine wine, the Shante’s and Bentley’s soon discover the complications involved in matrimony. Only time and the partaking of fine libations bought from their meeting place of Ithaca, New York, a place for which both couples share fond memories, will tell in this touching drama as each come upon revelations in their marriages.

Aldous remembers, a drama layered with humor and honesty examines the connection of love and memories, and how we deal with the potential realities of losing people we cherish in our lives and the moments we spend with them.
