The title role is played by Marjorie Johnson, which she originated during its premiere engagement at the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival last year. The New York debut will officially open Feb. 23.
Here's how the Vineyard bills the new work: "The holidays are always a wild family affair at the Shealy house. But this year, Dotty and her three grown children gather with more than exchanging presents on their minds. As Dotty struggles to hold on to her memory, her children must fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. This twisted and hilarious new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of a West Philly neighborhood."
The creative team includes set design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Kara Harmon, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Tom Morse and hair and makeup design by Dave Bova. Casting is by Henry Russell Bergstein, CSA.
