Forsyth, a mother-of-four who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007, spent four years writing the show. “The whole process has been a gift to me,” she said in a news release.

Directed by Caroline’s daughter, Aurelia Forsyth, a director at Xtreme Theatre, Understood Betsy runs from Feb. 14 to 16 at the Coquitlam venue (1205 Pinetree Way); partial proceeds will go to the MS Society of Canada.
