The Waverly Gallery is a play by Kenneth Lonergan. It is considered a "memory play". The show, first produced in 2000, follows a grandson watching his grandmother slowly die from Alzheimer's disease. Charles Isherwood of Variety said, "The life trauma being depicted has an inherent pathos, and in Lonergan's hands, no small amount of comic potential. And yet, while Lonergran mines his subject with delicacy and wit, he runs out of dramatic ore well before the evening's end."[1]
