Starring Michele Pawk as Lydia and DiMaggio as Vera and directed by Stella Powell-Jones, the production will begin performances April 25, prior to an official opening May 4. The limited run will continue through May 24.
Here's how the production is billed: "Lydia (Michele Pawk) lives by her motto, 'leave your baggage at the door, or it will end up on your face.' A decade after fleeing Cleveland for one long night out in Vegas, leaving the family's apartment building under the management of her daughter Vera, Lydia returns to find a lifetime of 'baggage' waiting for her inside. With a daughter fueled by faith, a mother driven by delusion, and a family secret that sounds the bell between them, 17 Orchard Point is a firecracker of a dark comedy about two generations of women battling to claim their home and history."
Dudley's writing credits include Substitution, Getting Home, Slag Heap and Honor and the River.
17 Orchard Point will feature scenic design by John McDermott, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Daisy Long and sound design by Elisheba Ittoop. The production is produced by Justin Scribner.
