From the playwright of local hits Moonglow and The Home Team comes another comedy. Here's how PNT bills it: "On the eve of receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, women's rights pioneer Roxie Firestone has a dilemma. As the mother of two grown daughters — Milty, her put-upon assistant and Tara, from whom she has been estranged for 20 years — she wouldn't win any Mother of the Year awards. When one daughter returns and the other threatens to jump ship, she must decide — which is more important, sisterhood or motherhood?" Casting and creative team will be announced. Performances will play Jan. 13-Feb. 13, 2011.
The 2010-11 season at the intimate Equity theatre will also include the Michigan premiere of Melinda Lopez's Sonia Flew (a co-production with the Jewish Ensemble Theatre); the Michigan resident premiere of the musical The Drowsy Chaperone; August Wilson's The Piano Lesson; Annie Baker's Circle Mirror Transformation; the Michigan premiere of Marie Antoinette: The Color of Flesh by Joel Gross; and a work to be announced.
