In a dusty corner of a used bookstore in Syracuse, New York, we find the diary of an 80 year old woman from 1922. “Unearthing Mary Bixby” explores what happens when present meets past through theatrical curiosity and the excavation of found verbatim text in a retrospective on aging, fate and memory.
