Radio play to feature seniors with memory loss

The Old Log Theater on the shores of Lake Minnetonka will host an unusual show tonight.

The live performance of a radio drama called "Pirates of Harrison Bay" will feature a cast of senior citizens who are all coping with memory loss.

The actors are participants in Sojourn Adult Day Services, a Mound, Minn.-based provider of artistic and therapeutic activities for seniors and adults with special needs.

MPR News host Cathy Wurzer spoke with longtime Twin Cities broadcaster J.B. Eckert, the show's director and writer.
