“A Love Offering,” a collaboration between the Des Moines Community Playhouse and Pyramid Theatre Co., opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday. There will be both livestream and in-person viewing options.
The show, written by Jonathan Norton, tells the story of T’Wana Jepson (played by Heaven Booker), a nurse’s aide who works with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. She’s been scratched, kicked, punched and called every name in the book. But after Jepson is attacked by a patient, her trust and friendship with Miss Georgia (played by Courageous Fire), her work companion, become threatened.
