When an old man dips a Madeleine cookie in his coffee at Starbucks, his snooty daughter-in-law gives him a little lecture on Proust. Determined to prove he's no dummy, he sets out to read all of Remembrance of Things Past, and along the way discovers the epic of his own life. A one-man show written and directed by Amy Crider and starring Jeff Broitman.

"...Madelines. Military service. Marriages and family. Swann's Way to Time Regained. An older man decides he will read Marcel Proust's iconic novel. As he reads all six volumes over the course of a year, he responds to Proust and reflects on his own life. And his audience may gain insights into their own too."
