Joanne Is Dead

Joanne Is Dead

Myrtle, a septuagenarian deep in the throes of dementia, often oscillates between her past and present. This annoys the bejesus out of the negligent nursing staff at her assisted-living facility. However, today, Myrtle's digressions seem to be revealing a bit more than usual. Is Myrtle confessing to decades of murder and betrayal? She can't be, right? RIGHT?
