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 new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of a West Philly neighborhood.
See it if You like comedic family dramas/stories re: Alzheimers. It's a nice show with some heart felt moments & good performances (for the most part)
Don't see it if This show could be GREAT but the last 20min were excruciating & unnecessary. Should end w/ piano playing. Hope they fix in previews.
See it if you enjoy seeing dementia handled with sensitivity and humor, excellent ensemble/Marjorie Johnson's heartbreaking performance
Don't see it if you don't want to see a play that needs editing and reworking of a few scenes; even flawed, play has vital stuff of life
See it if You love family drama interactions, enjoy a good laugh, despite difficulty and want to learn more about an important topic that affects all
Don't see it if You don't have a sense of humor and cringe at the word family drama:)!
