Map of Heaven play

I just saw the premier of the play Map of Heaven by Michele Lowe at DCPA in Denver. The story is about a rising female artist in New York and her busy physician husband.  It isn’t so much a story about art, but instead focuses on relationships and maps, the path one’s life might be taking and how it can be changed irrevocably by an incident. In this story, several lives are sent on different paths after an ethical tragedy.  Coincidentally, the artist’s paintings are MAPS!  And the physician is a radiologist who looks at ‘maps’ of cellular tissue in mammograms. Except of course he messes up one very badly. Very clever and interesting interplay between the maps of 5 people’s lives. However, I don’t know if agree with one reviewer’s view that the theme was about:

the healing power of art.
