Ladysitting, premiering at Arden Theatre, is based on Philadelphia author Lorene Cary’s memoir about the year she spent taking care of her 101-year-old fiercely independent grandmother, Nana. It’s a story about caregiving, aging, love, anger and forgiveness, and it looks back at five generations of an African American family. Lorene Cary and Tony Award-winning actor Trezana Beverly, who plays Nana, join us.
