    "HOSPICE" concerns the relationship of two African American women: Alice Anderson and her daughter Jenny. Years before, Alice had abandoned her 10-year-old daughter and husband for a life as a bohemian poet in Paris. But now Alice is dying of cancer, and has returned to the U.S. and the home she grew up in. Unbeknownst to her, Jenny (now 30 and a defiantly single mother-to-be) has also moved into the old house to have her baby. Can the two women come to terms with their relationship after 20 long years of separation? Intertwined through the production are live excerpts from Puccini's opera "Madame Butterfly." According to director Bernice Rohret, "When I first read the piece, I was taken with the fascinating parallels between "Hospice' and "Madame Butterfly,' especially in terms of the relationship between a mother and her daughter. Since part of Aulis' mission is to utilize music in our productions, it struck me that it would be interesting to literally intermingle the two diverse works. I think this fusion of "art' and' life,' as it were, will illuminate the play for our audiences."
