"Mesa" is particularly personal for playwright Doug Curtis and his wife and frequent collaborator, Heather Moore.
The play, which Invisible Theatre opens next week, is based on a trip Curtis took from their Calgary home with Moore's grandfather. "My mother-in-law asked me if I would like to drive Grandpa Bud to Mesa," Curtis said of that day in 1998.
Flying Grandpa Bud down wasn't an option.
