In Tangles, the loving bond between an older woman and her granddaughter reflects the social reality of non-traditional family structures and shows how strength and resiliency can emerge despite the devastating disease. Tangles will be followed by a discussion focused on finding solutions and new paths of empowerment for patients, providers, and families. This production uniquely fuses traditional theatrical storytelling with medical research.
