Serenity Hill is a long term
assisted living facility,
with acute care,
memory care
and specialty care units,
on the east coast
of the United States.

Serenity Hill began as a play.
Written for the stage.
To be performed
live on stage.

As a play,
it was in development
with Hamner Theater
until Covid-19
put live performances on hold.

Serenity Hill
finds its debut
in a new format
with new dialogue,
and current events.

Serenity Hill: In the Pandemic
is a series
of 20 minute episodes,
written and produced
in real time.
