Christie Paige [email protected] Saturday 8:30 AM Class The Boise Contemporary Theatre introduced The Velocity of Autumn by Eric Coble directed by Michael Perlman telling the story of desperate hopes to live out free will, Lillian, played by Mary Portser, barricades herself in her New York townhome refusing to accept the wishes of her children to go to a nursing home. Lillian’s children tried everything they knew in efforts to help their mother including their last result, calling Tom. Tom played by Matthew Cameron Clark returns to New York to help his siblings get their mother to a nursing home and ended up helping his mother instead. Like mother like child, both were adventurous and free spirited. Tom’s return was a big deal to Lillian because he had been gone for so long traveling and living with his partner. Lillian was holding on to the last bit of what she shared with her husband, Tom’s father, and she was fighting for her right to keep her independence verses doing as her other children wished. The most important thing to remember from this play is that as life is lived, adventures are taken, sights are seen, and goals are accomplished all anyone has left in their later years is their pride and dignity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
